The Telegraph have reported that the deal was worth a total of £42.5million over the five years, making him one of the biggest earning managers in the Premier League.

Football Insider verdict:
This is fantastic news for Tottenham, in fact it’s fair to say that it’s the deal of the year for them. No matter who they sign this summer, it will be hard to argue that any of the signatures would be as valuable as this one. Last season it seemed inconceivable that he wouldn’t sign a new contract but then a very uncharacteristic outburst on the last day of the season seemed to throw it all in doubt. Pochettino hinted that Daniel Levy would have to be brave and spend money this summer if he wanted Tottenham to join the Premier League and European elite. If that was a serious gambit it looks like Spurs fans could have even more to look forward to this summer after their beloved manager has agreed new terms. It means that Tottenham go into their new stadium with confidence and a manager that’s committed to seeing out the revolution that he started in north London.
