Spurs advised to suspend new contract plans for improved star
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham has had a fine season that has seen them go top of the Premier League table, reach the quarterfinal of the Carabao Cup, and also the round of 32 of the Europa League.

Serge Aurier has been a key contributor and he has been one of the most improved players at the club this season.

He was expected to struggle to play when Tottenham signed Matt Doherty last summer.

Reports even linked him with a move away from the club, but he seems to have turned his situation around and he is now one of Jose Mourinho’s trusted men.

Football Insider revealed a few days back that the club was planning to hand him a new deal after his upturn in form.

Michael Brown has now urged them to hold off on that offer for now and watch the former PSG man.

He claimed that the club still has time even though the defender will be out of contract in 18 months.

Asked what he thought of Aurier’s turnaround in north London, Brown told Football Insider: “You were always questioning that, weren’t you, to see what he’s going, how he was going to react?

“I mean, for me, with 18 months left, I don’t know, I just don’t think there’s any rush for Spurs’ case until the end of the season. 

“I just think, ‘keep everyone fighting, keep them on their toes, you’ve got another player in that position’, so 18 months is fine but if he gets a new deal, he’s obviously playing, he’s in and around and Spurs are in a good position.”
