Dele Alli is set to get another improved deal, as Tottenham Hotspur makes it even more difficult to pry one of its top assets from North London.

The 31-times capped England international is “close” to agreeing a new deal with Spurs to lock him into town with newly-extended Harry Kane and Mauricio Pochettino (contracts, not height).

Dele, 22, signed his latest contract in Sept. 2016, tying him to the club through 2022 after a standout first season saw him score 10 goals with 11 assists.

He’s raised his career output to 48 goals and 41 assists with Spurs, though his goals dipped from 22 to 14 between 2016-17 and 2017-18.
