Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have swooned over a report which has emerged claiming that Serge Aurier is in line for a new contract.
According to Football Insider, the north London club are set to offer the Ivorian defender a new deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after a ‘career revival’.
This comes after the right-back supposedly nearly left Spurs in a number of previous transfer windows.
However, a U-turn has been made because Aurier is ‘playing the best football of his three and a half years at Spurs‘ under the guidance of Jose Mourinho.
The report was relayed to Spurs fans by Hotspur Related and it had lots of them talking.
So, what did these Spurs fans have to say about the contract report on Serge Aurier?

His defensive & positional improvement is remarkable, hard to argue against him being the most complete RB in the league right now,
As form allows anyway, you will have some who can cross better or defend better but as I said the most complete all rounder at this stage.
