Dele Alli signs new contract with Tottenham until 2022
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.”
