​Hollywood star offer Tottenham's Alli some post football career advice!

Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg has suggested he may try to entice Dele Alli into becoming an action hero when his Tottenham playing days are over, reports the London Evening Standard.

The 20 year old signed a double-your-money six-year Tottenham contract extension until 2022 on Monday after becoming one of Mauricio Pochettino's key players at White Hart Lane.

While Alli's playing career is likely to go on for more than a decade, American actor Wahlberg - star of the Transformers franchise - joked that the England international has a future on the silver screen in Los Angeles.

"I think he plays until his mid-30s and then he comes to Hollywood, and we make him an action hero," he told Tottenham on a recent trip to White Hart Lane.

"We're going to start him out with action movies while he's young and then we'll put him in some romantic comedies, some drama."
