Nigerian born midfielder Dele Alli has signed a new five-year deal worth £25,000 per week with Tottenham keeping him at the club until 2021.
Alli only joined Spurs in the summer having signed from MK Dons last January for £5million before being loaned back and helping them win promotion to the Championship.
But his impressive performances for Mauricio Pochettino's side this season have caught the eye of England manager Roy Hodgson and Alli won his first international cap last year.
The move to tie Alli down to a new deal is set to warn off any club hoping to make a bid for the 19-year-old after his impressive start to life in the Premier League.
Alli said: 'I am obviously delighted, the club have been really great with me since I have come here and we have a great young team and I can see us going forward and I am happy to be here.'
Alli has made 25 appearances for Spurs this season in all competitions and scored five goals as well as winning four caps for England with his first international goal coming against France.
The teenage midfielder's previous contract was worth £10,000 a week but his impressive performances have seen him more than double that to £25,000 a week.
