    JOSE MOURINHO wants Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen to become the next stars to sign a new contract at Tottenham.

    Toby Alderweireld put pen-to-paper on a new three-and-a-half year deal – having previously been able to leave for free in the summer.

    And the Portuguese coach wants the two other stars to follow suit, with Eriksen linked with moves to Man United and Real Madrid.

    As reported by the Independent, Mourinho said: “The only thing I will tell you about Christian is that I would like him to sign a new contract. Apart from that I'm not going to tell you anymore.”

    Regarding Vertonghen, the 'Special One' added: “I think a player will sign a contract when the club wants – I am the club, Mr Levy is the club – the player wants, when the family wants, when the agent wants.

    “If one of these parts doesn't want it, it is very difficult to make it happen unless the player changes agent and gets an agent who also wants.”

    TOTTENHAM signed Toby Alderweireld to a new contract, after failing to attract Ben Godfrey from Norwich City.

    Football Inisder report that Spurs faced a setback in their bid for the 21-year-old defender, having been keen to bring the former York City ace in next month.

    But they were told that he was not for sale by the Canaries, leading them to act fast in tying down Alderweireld.

    The Belgian put pen-to-paper on a £150,000-a-week deal that saw him triple his salary, with the 30-year-old out of contract in the summer.

    MOUSSA SISSOKO has said that Tanguy Ndombele is like his ‘little brother’ and he’d do anything to help him at Tottenham.

    He told the Standard: “Tanguy’s living by my house.

    “I’m trying to help him, give him some advice. Even with his English, because he doesn’t speak English very well.

    “When you move ­countries and you don’t speak the language, you’re alone, it’s not easy. But we’re here to help him and he’s doing well.

    “I’ve been with him while he’s looking for a house, helping him to speak with people, buy stuff, telling him which places he can and cannot go.

    “He’s a young player and he needs someone close to him who can help him.”
