Teen sensation Josh Onomah has signed a new Tottenham contract worth £4.7million, Football Insider sources understand.
Spurs announced on Wednesday afternoon that the attacking midfielder has finalised a four-and-a-half-year agreement with the club.
It replaces the four-year deal the 18-year-old signed last summer and is regarded by the high-flying north Londoners as reward for his development this season.
A Spurs source has told Football Insider that Onomah’s contract is worth £20,000-a-week, and £4.7million in total.
The Academy graduate has made 13 appearances this season, although only two of them have been starts, after making his debut in Tottenham’s 3-1 win against Aston Villa in November.

Speaking to the Tottenham website, Onomah said: “It’s a dream come true really – since I was young, my dream was to play for Tottenham and now that I’m doing that, it just seems surreal really.
“”(This contract) shows that if you work hard you’ll get your rewards. The gaffer has put me in tough games, he’s trusted me and he’s given me minutes so I thank him for that, I thank the fans for their support and I thank everyone close around me that’s given me the support that I need to do what I’m doing right now.”
