Tottenham winger Andros Townsend has signed a new long-term deal with the club.

A club statement on the tottenhamhotspur.com website reads: “We are delighted to announce that Andros Townsend has signed a new four-year contract with the club.”

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a breakout campaign at White Hart Lane this term, and was swiftly called up to Roy Hodgson’s England squad.

He impressed against Montenegro last Friday and again against Poland on Tuesday evening, and Spurs have moved quickly to secure his commitment.

The Tottenham winger has made eight appearances for Spurs this season, following a loan spell with Queens Park Rangers last term.

That temporary switch was the ninth of his career, but Townsend proved he could cut it in the Premier League – he was often the standout performer for the relegation strugglers in an otherwise difficult campaign.

He returned to Spurs this summer looking to earn a place in the first-team squad – something he has done despite the big-money arrivals that followed Gareth Bale's departure.
