Tottenham move to upgrade Lennon deal amid Liverpool interest

Tottenham are ready to upgrade Aaron Lennon's contract to ward off Liverpool.

Tottenham are ready to upgrade Aaron Lennon's contract to ward off Liverpool.

Lennon earns about £45,000 a week and can expect to increase his salary to £55,000 a week in return for signing a minimum two-year extension to take him up to 2016, says the Daily Express.

Liverpool have been long-term admirers of Lennon and director of football Damien Comolli knows him well from his time at Tottenham.

Spurs managed to secure Gareth Bale to a new long-term contract last March and are still hopeful of convincing Luka Modric to forget about a move to Manchester United or Chelsea and sign a new deal worth £100,000 a week.
