Spurs fans have been celebrating a number of key players signing new contracts in recent weeks, but they were less impressed with the latest announcement.
While the news of youngster Harry Winks getting a new deal was met with positivity, Tom Carroll putting pen to paper has prompted a mix of bemusement, laughter and anger from Tottenham’s support.
The best anyone seems to be able to say is that the extension of Carroll’s contract until 2019 will mean that the club will be able to pick up a decent fee when they sell him.
Even Mauricio Pochettino couldn’t quite hide his apathy when the announcement was made…

Tom Carroll's Tottenham CV:
Mates with Harry Kane

Weird super fan from China
If that's not worth a new contract then…

Tom Carroll getting a new contract is like me turning up to work every day drunk, naked & wanking and being offered a promotion.

Tom Carroll is 24 years old and right now looks to be 6th maybe even 7th choice centre mid. Don't really get this extension.

Why have we given Tom Carroll a new deal FFS. He's just not good enough for us. #COYS

Tom Carroll is useless but he came through the youth system, let's be kind!
