Report: Tottenham star close to signing new long-term contract



Dele Alli is close to signing a new long-term contract with Tottenham, according to Sky Sports.

The midfielder’s current deal expires in the summer of 2022. Sky claims he has now agreed fresh terms and his new contract will stretch beyond that date.

Talks have apparently been ongoing for several months. Alli is set to follow the lead of Mauricio Pochettino and Harry Kane, who committed their long-term futures to Spurs over the summer.

Alli has been sidelined with a hamstring injury for just over a month. The 22-year-old hasn’t played since scoring a penalty in normal time and in a shootout against Watford in the EFL Cup at Stadium MK.

He now faces a battle to win back his starting place for Tottenham and England. Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela have both been in form during Alli’s absence, while Ross Barkley has emerged as a contender for the Three Lions.

Alli is in contention to start against Manchester City in a matter of hours, although Mauricio Pochettino has hinted he may not be risked – check out our predicted Spurs XI here.
