Our international midfielder — a key man and World Cup finals goalscorer in Glenn’s England days — sees his current contract run out in the summer.
He has insisted all along he wants to stay and now appears keen to sign a deal that will take him into testimonial territory having first signed for us from Portsmouth back in 1992.
Darren, battling back from an Achilles injury, said: “It’s important in my eyes that we have a good manager coming to the club. With Glenn that will be exactly what we’ve got and will make me want to stay even more.
“It is a big decision for me. I need to get fit again and it’s a big contract for me.
“I’ve been here nine years and hopefully a contract would keep me here beyond that. You don’t see players at clubs this long, I like here and hopefully I can sort something out.
“Glenn’s arrival is a good thing. He’s a Tottenham man, the fans will be happy and I’m sure the players will be as well. He’s been good to me in the past, picked me for England and I’m very pleased.”
Darren Anderton is determined to sort out his future at Spurs now Glenn Hoddle is on board.
