Confirmed deal: Key Spurs man extends WHL stay until 2021

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that manager Mauricio Pochettino has signed a new contract until 2021.

The Argentine has transformed the Lilywhites since taking charge at White Hart Lane in summer 2014, propelling them from top four contention into this season’s Premier League title race.

Spurs missed out on the 2015/16 crown to Leicester City but that has not deterred the club nor Pochettino from committing their immediate futures to each other.

As reported by Sky Sports, the former Southampton boss ‘verbally agreed’ to a new deal at the end of last month, with his current terms due to expire in summer 2019.

But the north London club have now confirmed via their official Twitter account that Pochettino has formerly put pen to paper to extend his stay until 2021.

The South American is seen as essential to Tottenham’s immediate future, with the club now preparing for a season in the Champions League and a move to a new 61,000 seater stadium.
