Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele has signed a new long-term deal with the club, keeping the Belgian at White Hart Lane until 2019.

This is according to the Daily Mail, with the midfielder enjoying his finest season at Spurs after making 16 league apperances and scoring three goals.

The 28-year-old's impressive recent displays have seen him establish himself as a first-team regular in north London - a stark comparison to this time last year, when playing time was proving hard to come by.

The Belgium international's strength and dribbling have proved particularly effective weapons for Tottenham amidst their bid for a top four place, and alongside Dele Alli and Eric Dier, the Lilywhites have a midfield bursting with talent.

It's believed Daniel Levy made it a priority of Mauricio Pochettino's to tie Dembele down to a new deal, given he had just 18 months remaining on his previous contract.

Speaking to Spurs TV, Dembele said of his extended stay: "I'm very happy I've signed and happy to be part of our future.

"The way we're playing, the way the club is developing, everything is very good and everyone wants to be part of this team and this club.

"That's why I'm proud to extend my contract."

The Belgian is beginning to justify the £15 million spent on him in 2012 much to the delight of fans, who once faced the prospect of losing the mesmerising midfielder.

And given that Tottenham sit just five points behind league leaders Leicester City in the Premier League, Dembele's best form could not be more timely.
