Tottenham have confirmed that young goalkeeper Brandon Austin has agreed a new deal with the club which will keep him at Spurs until 2019.
The Lilywhites revealed that they had agreed terms over a new deal with the 18-year-old via their official Twitter account on Monday, with the shot stopper having come through the youth ranks at the north London club.

The hot prospect has established himself as an important player for the various youth and reserve sides at Spurs this season, having made 11 appearances across the under-18s, under-19s and under-23s.
He has also been called up for the United States’ under-18 squad, making one appearance in a friendly match with Slovakia back in April 2017.
Austin is the second promising talent to sign a new contract with the club in recent days, after seeing Anthony Georgiou commit to a new deal which is set to keep him at Spurs until 2020.
The goalkeeper faces a fight to establish himself among the first team any time soon, with Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm and summer signing Paulo Gazzaniga all having had game time this season, while fellow young shot stopper Alfie Whiteman has seen himself left as an unused substitute in the win over Crystal Palace prior to the international break.
