Toby Alderweireld will be the next Tottenham star to sign a new long-term contract at White Hart Lane.
The Belgium international central defender will have three years left on his current deal at the end of the season.
Now chairman Daniel Levy wants to keep the 27-year-old at the club for the next five years.
Levy has proved to be proactive in keeping the key members of his first team squad at Spurs.
This season, the likes of Harry Kane, Jan Vertonghen and – two days ago – goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris agreed contract extensions. Now Spurs will work on keeping Alderweireld and agreement is expected to be reached by the end of next month.

Spurs stars square off in darts challenge
Alderweireld has formed one of the most reliable central defensive partnerships in the Premier League with his compatriot Vertonghen.
He was badly missed during a two month absence because of a knee injury. Since he has his comeback as a substitute against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, Spurs have looked more solid as they continue their title challenge.
