Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Dele Alli has signed a new deal at Tot­ten­ham that will keep him at the club un­til 2022.

The 20-year-old Eng­land mid­fielder fol­lows a num­ber of play­ers who have com­mited their fu­ture to Spurs in re­cent weeks. These were Chris­tian Erik­sen, Eric Dier, Harry Winks and Tom Car­roll.

Other, in­clud­ing Danny Rose, Jan Ver­tonghen and Erik Lamela are all also re­port­edly in talks over new deals.

Alli made an in­stant im­pact at White Hart Lane last sea­son. He joined Spurs in a £5m deal from MK Dons, scor­ing 10 goals from mid­field and strik­ing up an ef­fec­tive part­ner­ship with Harry Kane as Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino's side fin­ished third in the Premier League.

He won the PFA Young Player of the Year award and earned an Eng­land call, scor­ing on his full in­ter­na­tional de­but in a 2-0 win over France last Novem­ber be­fore fea­tur­ing in the dis­ap­point­ing Euro 2016 cam­paign.

“I’m happy to be here and play­ing at Tot­ten­ham,” he told the club web­site. “Per­son­ally, I can’t think of any­where bet­ter, with the fans, the man­ager we’ve got here and the young team - it’s a great place to be.

“I’m happy to be at this club and I can't thank the man­ager and all the staff enough for every­thing they’ve done for me, and the fans, they’ve been right be­hind me since I signed. Hope­fully there are a lot of good times to come. The hard work isn’t go­ing to stop here. I have to keep work­ing hard and keep fight­ing for my place in this team.”
