Tottenham boss Mourinho: I'm speaking with Mr Levy about off contract trio

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is unconcerned over his off contract players.

Mourinho has made a perfect start to life as Tottenham boss winning his first three games in charge but questions still surround the future of some of his key players.

The contracts of midfielder Christian Eriksen, and defenders Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen finish at the end of the season, with reports claiming this week Eriksen has refused to sign a new deal.

Mourinho said: "I'm not going to discuss these individual things. If I tell you that I didn't speak with Mr [Daniel] Levy about Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen, I would be lying. So, yes I'm speaking with Mr Levy about it.

"At the same time, I speak also with the players, with all of them. We speak and try to understand every detail but it's not something I'm going to discuss.

"The important thing, really, is [they are] great professionals, big relationship with Tottenham, amazing understanding of what the club is and what we need from them.

"So, all three ready to play, all three ready to forget the contractual situation.

"And that's the most important thing now because we're in three competitions. And these boys are great players and Tottenham people. I trust them."
