Alli commits to Tottenham

Midfielder signs six-year deal

Dele Alli has become the latest player to commit his future to Tottenham.

Alli moved to White Hart Lane in January 2015 but he had to wait until the opening day of the 2015-16 campaign before making his debut for the club.

He went on to enjoyed a stunning debut season for Tottenham, scoring ten goals and providing 11 assists as he made 46 appearances, and his achievements saw him named PFA Young Player of the Year.

The 20-year-old has now put pen to paper on a new six-year deal that will see him remain at Tottenham until the end of June 2022.

"I remember when I was young and I wasn't playing football and I was looking up to the footballers and looking on the websites and seeing what they were doing," Alli told the club's website.

"I'm still the same kid as I always have been and nothing's changed for me off the pitch - I'm still the same person.

"I'm happy to be here and playing at Tottenham. 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."
