Bad business as Spurs looking to sell first-team player for only £3m

Posted by

Japhet Tanganga could leave Tottenham for just £3m this summer but it all depends on how well the defender plays between now and the end of the season. 

The 24-year-old is on loan at Millwall in the Championship and is finally getting some competitive minutes as he looks to rekindle his career. The Englishman spent the first half of the season on loan with Augsburg but didn’t kick a ball due to injuries before returning to Hotspur Way.

Tanganga is out of contract at Spurs in the summer, although the North London outfit can extend his deal by an extra year. Therefore, Tottenham have to decide whether to chase a small fee or let the player go for free.

According to Spurs insider John Wenham, Tottenham could get £3m for Tanganga if he plays well at Millwall until the end of the season.

Speaking to Tottenham News, Wenham said: “If Tanganga doesn’t play between now and the end of the season, I think that Tottenham will simply just release him

“If he does play, then I think Spurs will take up the option to extend his contract by one year, and then look to sell him for somewhere around the £3 million mark.

“Time will tell, but I expect that either way he will be gone in the summer.”
