Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks has signed a new contract that will keep him at White Hart Lane until 2022.
The 21-year-old has continued his progress after joining the club full-time in 2012, and scored his first goal in his first Premier League start in the 3-2 win against West Ham in November.
He has played in 25 games in all competitions this season, including two starts in the Champions League.
"I'm delighted, over the moon to be signing another contract, commit my future more and look forward to the upcoming years," Winks said.
"I'm still a Spurs fan, it's always my boyhood club. Every time I play for the team, I give it my all - it's in my nature really. I've been playing for Tottenham since I was six but I feel like I'm gradually getting a more important role.
"The club are believing in me. Obviously I'm doing well on the pitch to be rewarded with this but ultimately it doesn't stop there. I've got to keep working hard and and keep improving."
Winks made his senior debut in the Europa League against FK Partizan in November 2014.
His performances have also been rewarded with a first England U21 cap against France in November after progressing through all the junior ranks at international level.
Academy right-back Kyle Walker-Peters has followed Winks' lead by signing a new contract until 2019, while attacking midfielder Nathan Oduwa has joined Slovenian top-flight side Olimpija Ljubljana on loan.
