Dele Alli pens 6-year contract extension with Tottenham


IANS London
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has signed a contract extension tying him to the football club until 2024, the English Premier League (EPL) side announced on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old England international has scored 48 goals in 153 appearances with the Spurs, making his move to North London in 2015 after proving his potential at English club MK Dons, whose promotion to the Championship that year was greatly aided by the young player's prolific goal-scoring record, reports Efe.
"Delighted to have signed a new contract until 2024. Would like to say a big thank you to the chairman, manager, all my teammates and the fans for their constant support," Alli said in a statement on Twitter.
"I've loved my time at the Spurs so far and I'm very excited to see what the future holds!" he added.
Alli won the 2015/2016 EPL goal of the season for his shot against Crystal Palace in January 2016, and was voted the Professional Footballers' Association young player of the year in 2016 and 2017.
The midfielder has also scored three times in 31 games for England, playing in both the UEFA Euro 2016 and the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
