Club-record signing Davinson Sanchez extends Tottenham stay

Tottenham’s club-record signing Davinson Sanchez has signed a new contract through until 2024.

The centre-back, 21, moved from Ajax last August for a reported £42million and went on to become a mainstay at the heart of the Spurs defence.

Sanchez, named in Colombia’s World Cup squad, made 41 appearances in all competitions this season as Mauricio Pochettino’s men secured third place in the Premier League.

A brief statement on Spurs’ official Twitter feed read: “We are delighted to announce that Davinson Sanchez has signed a new contract with the club, which will run until 2024.”

The news follows on from confirmation of a new deal for defender Kyle Walker-Peters.

The 21-year-old full-back has penned a new deal which will run until at least 2021.

The future of manager Pochettino, though, remains subject for debate.

Pochettino is set to meet with chairman Daniel Levy for talks over his future.

Following Sunday’s season-ending 5-4 Premier League win over Leicester at Wembley, the Argentine coach said Spurs must “take risks” to win top trophies.

The former Southampton manager again refused to give any guarantees he would be Tottenham boss for the start of next season.

Pochettino, 46, has been linked with both Real Madrid and Chelsea, should those clubs look to change their manager over the summer.
