Davinson Sanchez has signed a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur which will tie him down to the club until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Sanchez, 21, joined Spurs last summer from Ajax for a fee that could reportedly reach £42 million after he helped the Dutch side reach the final of the Europa League.

Sanchez, named in Colombia's World Cup squad, made 41 appearances in all competitions this season as Mauricio Pochettino's men secured third place in the Premier League.

"I think Pochettino was right to say that and I think it is saying something about himself as well because if that ambition is not matched then I suspect he might depart and if he departs I can see some of the big stars following, so it's a big moment for Tottenham, (chairman) Daniel Levy and the owners". But Chelsea is now surprisingly eyeing a move for local rivals Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine has not had a massive transfer budget like other top clubs in the Premier League but has also not yet won a trophy to show for his massive efforts at Tottenham.

Gas prices still on the rise
Late spring and summer travel is expected to be more costly this year as fuel prices touch almost every sector of the economy. The average gas price in MI is $2.93 a gallon which is up seven cents from last week and 52 cents from a year ago.

Pochettino, 46, has been linked with both Real Madrid and Chelsea, should those clubs look to change their manager over the summer.

"I've enjoyed it so much this season because I have quality team-mates, I have quality staff guiding me and I have a quality training ground to work at", Sanchez said on Tottenham's official website.

I heard from the same source that told sky sports news re poch going to Chelsea.

"It is just one of those things, I wish I could have played more, but you have two players to compete in each position and that is how I would want it at any football club".
