Young defender Kyle Walker-Peters has signed a new contract with Tottenham to stay at White Hart Lane until 2019.
“I was buzzing, over the moon!” Walker-Peters told the club’s official website of being offered a new contract.
“I believe it shows that the club has faith in me and it’s perfect timing because it’s given me a lot more confidence when I’m going out there to train every day, believing that I’m going in the right direction.”
He added: “My long-term goal is definitely to play for Tottenham. I’m a Spurs fan, I was born at North Middlesex Hospital, I’ve grown up in Tottenham and I’ve supported the club all my life.
“I joined the club at 10 years old so it would be a massive honour to play and hopefully start a game one day, but that all starts from the training pitch so I need to keep improving and eventually prove to the gaffer that I’m worthy of a chance.
“I think every young player at the club should look at Harry Winks and think if he’s done it, I can do it too. That’s my motivation.
