‘Worth £50m’, ‘one of the most promising’: Some Spurs fans rave about academy graduate

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the prospect of Japhet Tanganga replacing Jan Vertonghen.

Vertonghen is out of contract at the end of the season and it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll be ending his eight-year association with Spurs.

The 33-year-old joined Tottenham in the summer of 2012 for a reported £9.5million and has made upwards of 300 competitive appearances for the Lilywhites.

However, no extension has been agreed with Spurs as of yet, and there’s a possibility he might not even see out the season, given his contract runs out on 30 June.

As for Tanganga, he has gone from strength to strength this season, breaking into the Spurs first team, and has 11 senior appearances to date.

According to Football London, Tottenham activated an extra-year option in his contract – a one-year deal penned last summer – some months ago to ensure he will not be a free agent this summer.

The outlet claims that discussions over a new long-term contract are set to get under way once normality returns, with Jose Mourinho believing Tanganga is an important player for the future.

But what do Spurs fans make of the prospect of Tanganga taking over from Vertonghen? Below are some of the social media comments:
