England international Alli signs new deal until 2021 at Tottenham

BY foxsports • January 12, 2016

England international midfielder Dele Alli has committed his long term future to Spurs by signing a contract extension which runs until 2021.

The 19-year-old has made a huge impact at Spurs since arriving from MK Dons and he made his first start for England against France in November, scoring a spectacular opener in a 2-0 friendly win.

Alli came through the youth system at MK Dons and, although he was signed by Spurs in February, he was loaned back to Milton Keynes and helped them secure promotion to the Championship.

He made his Spurs debut from the bench when they kicked off their Premier League season with a 1-0 loss at Manchester United and wasted little time in becoming a regular starter.

He has scored five goals in 18 Premier League appearances for Mauricio Pochettino's side and made his England debut when he was a late substitute against Estonia on October 9.

Having signed his new deal, Alli told the Spurs website: "I'm delighted

"The club has been really great to me since I arrived.

"We have a great young team and I can only see us moving forward. I am really happy to be here.

"When I signed here I wanted to play for Tottenham and I was not thinking about going anywhere else at the time.

"The manager and everyone have helped me a lot and thankfully I have broken in and got a few games.

"I have shown a lot of people what I can do and established myself as a Premier League player but I am 19 and I have still got a lot to learn.

"I can't think of a better place at the minute to do that."
