England midfielder Dele Alli has signed a new long-term contract, keeping him at Tottenham Hotspur until 2024, the Premier League club announced on Tuesday. The 22-year-old joined Spurs in 2015 and has scored 48 goals in 153 competitive appearances for the club. He joins Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Davinson Sanchez and Harry Winks in signing long-term deals at the club in recent months. "We are delighted to announce that Dele Alli has signed a new contract with the Club, which will run until 2024," Spurs said on their website.
"The midfielder joined us as a teenager from boyhood club MK Dons in 2015 and immediately set about making an impact in the Premier League, being named PFA Young Player of the Year and earning a spot in the PFA Team of the Year in each of his first two seasons with us."
Spurs are fifth in the Premier League following Monday's 0-1 home defeat against leaders Manchester City.
Playing on the scarred Wembley turf just 24 hours after it was torn up by an NFL fixture, Manchester City's peerless quality and a predatory finish from Riyad Mahrez helped them win the pitch battle.
A sixth victory from their last seven league games lifted Guardiola's unbeaten side back above Liverpool on goal difference.
It was a dispiriting evening for fifth placed Tottenham, who now trail City by five points after their first league defeat in five games.
Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld blamed the pitch, saying: "I have to be honest, the pitch wasn't good.
"Both teams like to play out from the back and to play football in these circumstances, it was very difficult."
