Tottenham are planning on offering winger Aaron Lennon a contract extension that would see him stay at White Hart Lane until 2016, reports The
Lennon’s current deal runs until 2014, but Spurs are keen to tie the 24-year-old right winger down to a longer deal, in order to avoid having to sell him at a reduced fee should other clubs express an interest. Chairman Daniel Levy is thought to be eager to avoid a similar situation to that that Arsenal found themselves in with the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. The deal will also reportedly include a £10,000-a-week pay rise, which will see Lennon’s weekly wage rise to £55,000.
Lennon has been in excellent form for Spurs this season, amassing 3 goals and 2 assists despite a spell on the sidelines over the Christmas period with hamstring tear.
