Dele Alli gives two-word Twitter verdict after Tottenham secure landmark deal
By Will Butcher
Dele Alli has revealed that he is delighted to have signed a new six-year deal with Tottenham.
The London club announced on Tuesday morning that the England midfielder has agreed a landmark contract that runs until 2022.
The 20-year-old has joined fellow senior Spurs stars Christian Eriksen and Eric Dier in putting pen to paper with Mauricio Pochettino’s side over the last fortnight, as the Argentinian manager looks to tie down the core of his squad.
It was also announced on Friday that fringe players Tom Carroll and Tom Winks have also signed contract extensions.
England international Alli described Spurs as an “amazing club” on his personal Twitter account, and also thanked the club’s fans for their support.

Fans are delighted that one of their most prized assets has committed his long-term future to the club, despite already having a contract with Spurs until 2021.
Tottenham’s number 20 moved to White Hart Lane in the 2015 winter window in a £5million deal from Mk Dons, and has gone on to make 52 appearances for the club during his stay as well as scoring 11 goals.
Alli has starred in all six of Spurs’ opening matches of the new campaign in all competitions, finding the net once in Spurs’ emphatic 4-0 win against Stoke.
The youngster was named the Premier League Young Player of the Season last season and he will now look to continue progressing with the north London club.
