Harry Kane has signed a new contract at Tottenham that will keep him at the club until 2022.
Kane, who was the Premier League's top-scorer last season with 25 goals, had been in talks with Spurs since the summer and his new deal extends his stay at White Hart Lane by a further two years.
"It's amazing. Everyone knows how much I love this team and what I feel for this club," Kane told Tottenham's official club website.
"To sign another contract is a special feeling. We've got a great, young squad and the club is moving in the right direction."
The 23-year-old is the latest in a growing line of players to commit to White Hart Lane in the last couple of months, with Christian Erisken, Dele Alli, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Harry Winks all agreeing fresh terms in north London.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking ahead of Saturday's home clash with Swansea, said he was delighted to get the deal done.
"It's important for us, for the club. It's great news. We are very happy because he is showing his commitment to the club," he said.
"It's important for the player to be calm in their mind and focus on playing and improving every day. When they are involved in the negotiations, it can affect the player. I'm not saying affected Harry, but the deal is done and he can focus on training and improving and scoring goals."
After coming through Tottenham's academy, Kane made his debut in 2011 but it was towards the end of the 2013-14 campaign that he first made an impact.
The following season he scored 21 goals in the league and he now has 70 overall for Spurs in 137 appearances.
Kane has only recently returned from a seven-week absence with an ankle injury but has scored four goals in his last four matches.
