Alli ‘happy’ after signing new Tottenham deal

Tottenham Hotspur have received a massive boost with the news midfielder Dele Alli has put pen to paper on a new six-year contract.

The London outfit have continued to tie down their players to new contracts ahead of the January transfer window, with Alli's new deal following hot on the heels of Tom Carroll committing his future to the club last week.

The 20-year-old is widely regarded as one of England's brightest prospects, having broken into the reckoning for England's senior team in 2015, under former Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson.

To date, Alli has made 37 Premier League appearances for the Lilywhites, bagging 11 goals in the process.

He has been capped 13 times by England, with his solitary goal coming in his first start, in a 2-0 victory over France on 17 November 2015.

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

“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.”
