Tottenham fans have been left raving on social media after the club confirmed they had agreed terms over a new long-term contract with defender Davinson Sanchez.

The Lilywhites revealed the new contract, which runs until 2024, via their official Twitter account, with the Colombian powerhouse putting pen to paper less than 12 months after he arrived in north London for a record breaking fee.

The 21-year-old, who signed from Dutch giants Ajax last summer, has been impressive at the heart of the defence since his arrival, quickly establishing himself as a first team mainstay despite more established star Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld also battling it out for the starting XI.

With 43 appearances under his belt, including in every Champions League game Spurs played in the season just gone, he has become a firm favourite of the Tottenham faithful, as evidenced by their reactions to his new deal.

The fans were absolutely delighted to see him commit his long-term future in north London on Twitter, although many were hoping that Toby Alderweireld would be the next man to put pen to paper, the Belgian’s future in serious doubt as the club head into the summer transfer market.
