January 8, 2007

England winger Aaron Lennon has signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal with Tottenham to keep him at White Hart Lane until 2012.

The 19-year-old, who was signed from Leeds in 2005, impressed particularly towards the end of last season and was called up to the World Cup squad for the summer.

'Aaron has taken his chances and made himself into a regular first-team player in a short space of time and we often forget how young he still is,' said manager Martin Jol on the club's official website.

Lennon added: 'I'm feeling really settled here at the club and I'm thoroughly enjoying my football. There is a terrific spirit in the squad and we have everything to play for this season.'
