Danny Rose has signed a new contract with Tottenham that will keep him at the club until 2021.
Rose joined Spurs from Leeds in a £1m deal as a 17-year-old in 2007 and had spells at Watford, Peterborough and Bristol City before spending a season on loan at Sunderland in the 2012/13 season.
He made a memorable start to life as a Spurs player, scoring a superb volley 10 minutes into his Premier League debut against rivals Arsenal and has since gone on to make 93 league appearances for the club, establishing himself as Mauricio Pochettino's first-choice left-back despite the £10m arrival of Ben Davies in 2014.
His good form for Spurs last season earned him a spot in Roy Hodgson's England squad, winning his first cap in the 3-2 friendly win over Germany and he has since made eight appearances for his country.
The 26-year-old follows Christian Eriksen, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Tom Carroll in signing new deals at White Hart Lane in recent weeks.
"It's been a great couple of weeks for the club with Dele, Eric, Christian, Harry Winks all signing contracts," he told the club website.
"Everyone knows the club is going in the right direction and I'm over the moon that I've earned a new contract that will keep me here until I'm an old man!
"We all want to go out and prove that last season wasn't a one-off with us finishing third. Right now I'm so happy. I'm settled here - I'm slowly turning into a southerner!
"I hope I can stay here for a very long time and see where it takes me but at the minute I wouldn't wish for anything more than to play for Spurs for the rest of my career."
