Andros Townsend signs new deal with Tottenham Hotspur

Paul Gilham

He's probably been Tottenham Hotspur's best attacking player this season, and now he has a new contract.

Andros Townsend has had an excellent start to the season and Tottenham Hotspur have decided to lock him up long term before his stock gets any hotter. The club announced on Friday that the winger has signed a new four-year deal with the club.

Townsend, who joined Tottenham as an eight-year-old, has gone on loan nine times as a professional. His last loan spell at Queens Park Rangers was by far his most impressive, and he's parlayed that into a key role with Spurs, and in turn a key role with England. He scored his first goal for his country a week ago against Montenegro.

Townsend was previously signed through the 2015-16 season, so this is merely a one-year extension. The club doesn't release the terms of contracts, but it's likely that he got a hefty wage hike. At the same time, Spurs were able to keep a player happy while he's still flying a little bit under the radar and probably not commanding any kind of exorbitant contract.
