Dele Alli delighted with bumper new Spurs deal

Dele Alli is delighted with his new contract at Tottenham.

The midfielder has penned terms to 2022.

“I remember that game at Sunderland, I didn't expect to play as quickly as I did and make an impact in the team," Alli told the Spurs website. “It's happened so quickly, starting at Tottenham, playing for England… it's been a crazy year for me and there are so many people I have to thank.

“I'm happy to be at this Club and I can't thank the manager and all the staff enough for everything they've done for me, and the fans, they've been right behind me since I signed. Hopefully there are a lot of good times to come.

“It's a bit surreal but I'm the same kid as I always have been, nothing has changed for me off the pitch, I'm still the same person and thankfully, like I said before, I've got great support around me.

“The hard work isn't going to stop here. I have to keep working hard and keep fighting for my place in this team."
