Dele Alli is now Tottenham’s second highest earner after Harry Kane after signing a new six-year contract.
That’s according to London Evening Standard journalist Dan Kilpatrick, who is very reliable when it comes to things Spurs.

Alli has followed the lead of Kane and Mauricio Pochettino, who both committed their long-term futures to Tottenham over the summer.
And it is believed the 22-year-old’s new deal is worth £150,000 per week, making him the club’s second highest earner behind Kane and ahead of captain Hugo Lloris.
Spurs fans will be delighted to see a number of key figures signing new contracts ahead of the move into the new stadium, although improved deals don’t always guarantee players and managers won’t leave.
Pochettino is being linked with the Real Madrid job again after the La Liga giants sacked Julen Lopetegui this week.
However, the Argentinian has repeatedly spoken of his intention to see out the current project at Tottenham, even if Gary Neville believes he has set the groundwork to leave.
Hopefully Christian Eriksen is the next player to put pen to paper.
