Tottenham midfield schemer Luka Modric is set to pen a new five-year contract. The Sunday Mirror says Modric, despite interest from Manchester United, is set to sign a new contract that will keep him at Tottenham for five years.

The Croatian midfield star, who arrived two years ago from Dinamo Zagreb for £16.5m, has been a key figure in the club's for Champions League surge.

There were initial fears that because of his slight frame, the 24-year-old would struggle to adapt to the demands of the Premier League, but he has erased those doubts with some stunning displays.
