Tottenham and England winger Andros Townsend has penned a new contract at White Hart Lane, keeping the 22-year-old at the club for another four years.

Townsend will now earn a pay rise from previous wage of £6,000-a-week to an improved amount of £15,000-a-week, nearly trebling his wage. The 22-year-old has been Tottenham's most outstanding player this season and recently impressed during England's 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

Townsend was on the verge of completing a £500,000 move away from the Lane to join Championship outfit Millwall just over two years ago, according to the Daily Mail. The winger had a loan spell at the club back in 2011, where he managed to net twice on his stint at the club.

Spurs had previously regarded Townsend as an unimportant player to the squad; which saw the disregarded winger take on various loan spells at different English clubs - his last being at former Premier League club Queens Park Rangers under old manager Harry Redknapp, who had given Townsend the opportunity of first-team football.

Townsend scored on his full England debut in a crucial fixture against Montenegro last Friday, to help the Three Lions edge a step closer to securing qualification for next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.
