Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Darren Bent expects Japhet Tanganga to sign a new six-year deal with Jose Mourinho's side.

Former Tottenham Hotspur forward Darren Bent believes that Spurs will soon announce a new six-year contract for Japhet Tanganga.

The 20-year-old's current deal with Jose Mourinho's side is due to expire at the end of the season, but the Premier League giants are said to be in talks over an extension.

Bent, who turned out for Tottenham between 2007 and 2009, has claimed that the defender is likely to pen an initial five-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.

"Spurs are quite good at it, when it comes to tying people down to long-term contracts, they've always been very, very good at it and quite shrewd," Bent told Football Insider.

"When they get young players coming through or they sign a youngster from another club, it's always the six-year contract, so it's always the five plus one.

"I think the one might even be in their favour. I'd have signed the same deal when I went there, it was five years plus the one. It wouldn't surprise me if Tanganga was to sign that type of deal. For me it's a great deal if they can tie him down, he's a very, very exciting prospect and he's not let them down."

Tanganga has made 11 appearances for Spurs during the 2019-20 campaign, featuring in six of their last eight Premier League matches, including the last three against Chelsea, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Burnley.
