Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is preparing for another London derby this weekend, with Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris set to play roles in the affair with West Ham United.

The manager thinks the striker and goalkeeper will be involved in plenty more while wearing the Tottenham Hotspur shirt.

Kane and Lloris are also two players in line for new deals with the White Hart Lane set, and Pochettino has no worries whether they’ll join Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen as long-term Londoners.

Pochettino was asked whether Kane and Lloris seeing their teammates get raises could unsettle them. From the London Evening Standard:

“There is some rumour that can affect our fans but they should not be worried about things like this because the players want to be here in the long-term.

“I think they are talking maybe about improving and extending the contract and I think in the future it will not be a problem to do.”

Kane’s current $62,000/week deal is more than 100k per week less than England teammate Jamie Vardy‘s new contract, and one of the main reasons we expect a deal done sooner rather than later.

Lloris makes $100k per week according to the report, and is likely less urgent. Kane is signed through 2019-20, while Lloris’ current deal runs through 2018-19.
