Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed on their official website that young attacker Dele Alli has signed a new six-year deal with the North London club.

The 20-year-old has shown no fear in his rise from relative obscurity to the Premier League, winning the PFA Player of the Year award in his debut campaign in the top flight in 2015-16.

Alli has gone on to be a regular for England and is adjudged as one of the most-promising and talented young players in the national game.

Despite the versatile attacker having a long-term deal in place with Spurs already, new-and-improved terms have reiterated the former MK Dons star’s commitment to Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Alli admitted he was delighted to extend his stay with the Premier League side.

“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,” he told the club’s official website.

“Hopefully there are a lot of good times to come.

“I have to keep trying to improve, I can’t get carried away, I have to keep trying to make each year better than the last. This will be a tough year to top but hopefully I can do it.”

Alli follows in the footsteps of a host of Tottenham’s young stars in signing new contracts at White Hart Lane, with Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier also both committing to the club in the last couple of weeks.
