Tom Carroll has doubled his wages to £35,000-a-week after signing a new Tottenham contract, Football Insider sources understand.

Spurs confirmed on their official Twitter account on Friday that midfielder Carroll has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal.

It replaces the 24-year-old’s previous deal, which was due to expire imminently, and is regarded by the high-flying north Londoners as reward for his development.

A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that Carroll contract is worth £35,000-a-week, and £5.5million in total.

The fresh agreement for the 24-year-old academy graduate will run until 2019.

Carroll is one of five Spurs midfielders to sign new contracts in the last fortnight, with senior trio Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier and youngster Harry Winks all committing their long-term futures to the London giants over the last week.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has demonstrated his faith in Carroll by regularly naming him in the matchday squad in recent seasons.

However, the midfielder has only figured once for the senior team this season, when he came off the bench in the final minute of the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last month.

Carroll has made 54 appearances for the Spurs first team, scoring three goals and providing five assists. He has also had loan spells at Swansea, QPR, Derby and Leyton Orient

Spurs announced on Monday that Alli had signed a new contract, which came after Eriksen and Dier committed to fresh terms in the last two weeks.

In other Tottenham news, this is how badly Paul Merson got his Spurs prediction wrong.
