Alli has made a huge impression since signing from MK Dons making 30 appearances so far for the club this season and he has scored five goals. He also scored a great strike for England versus France on his international debut.
It has been a memorable season for the 19-year-old, and he was delighted.
“When I signed I knew wanted to play for Spurs,” Alli told the club website.
“I’ve played a few games and showed people what I can do. I’m 19, have a lot to learn and can’t think of a better place to do that.”

Speaking to the Tottenham website Alli added that he has settled in well at Spurs and paid homage to Manager Mauricio Pochettino overseeing his development.
“I was always confident in my ability. When I moved here a lot of people [outside the club] were talking about loans but when I signed, I wanted to play for Tottenham and I wasn’t thinking about going anywhere else,” said Alli.
“The manager has helped me a lot and thankfully, I’ve broken in [to the first team] and got a few games now. I’ve been able to show what I can do and establish myself as a Premier League player. I know I still have a lot to learn and can’t think of a better place to do that.”
