Tottenham Hotspur fans heading into the Transfer Tavern for an early lunch have been greeted by news of a new signing, tying a familiar face to the club.
Spurs have officially announced that Mousa Dembele has signed a new contract at White Hart Lane that will keep him tied to the club until 2019, in what signifies a major deal for the Premier League title hopefuls.
Dembele has been a key-player for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season, who are on course to reach their target of a top-four finish, and the Belgian international stated he was delighted to put pen to paper on a new deal.
“I am very happy I’ve signed and I’m happy to be a part of our future. The way we’re playing, the way the club is developing, everything is good and everyone wants to be a part of this team and this club. That’s why I’m proud to sign this contract.”
Our landlord believes Dembele has been a vital cog in the machine of Spurs this season and provides a level-head to a largely inexperienced side, with our boss being a keen fan of the player.
