Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has signed a new deal with the club that will keep him in North London until the summer of 2023.

The Frenchman, who joined Spurs from Newcastle in a £30m deal in 2016, has become a key part of the midfield under Mauricio Pochettino with 132 appearances to date.

Speaking to Tottenham’s official website about the extension, Sissoko said he was “very proud” to have put pen to paper on fresh terms.

“Of course I am very proud to sign a new deal with the club,” the 30-year-old said. “That means they believe in me and are happy with what I’m doing. Hopefully I can give my best to the club for a long time and hopefully we can get some trophies together.

“I am happy with my new contract. My family and friends are very happy and proud because they know at the beginning it was maybe tough for me, but I never give up.

“I was always believing in myself and trying to do my best even in the bad moments. They are happy and behind me since I started. They are very proud of my new contract.”

Spurs are next in action on Saturday when they face Southampton in the Premier League.
