Harry Kane has signed a bumper new Tottenham deal – and Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are set to follow suit.
England striker Kane has signed a six year contract understood to be worth up up to £200,000 per week, including bonuses.
And Danish midfielder Eriksen and England star Alli are the next in line to get bumper new pay deals.
Eriksen has already emerged as one of the best midfielders in Europe while Mirror Sport revealed months ago that Alli has held talks over a new contract. It is a huge boost for Spurs as they prepare to move into their new stadium, having already secured Mauricio Pochettino to a new deal.
Kane said: “Yes, it’s a big boost and I’m looking forward to starting next season.”
The new agreement could see Kane bank as much as a stunning £62.4m after he committed his future until 2024.
Spurs’ star man doubled his money having been on around £100,000 week on his previous deal which was signed in December 2016 and ran until 2022.
And, crucially for the club, the 24-year-old’s wage hike means more room for manoeuvre for Spurs boss Pochettino.
A string of Spurs’ other stars are in line for contract extensions after also helping the club secure Champions League football for a third season running including the likes of Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen and Heung-Min Son while Michel Vorm has re-signed for another year.
And Pochettino’s hopes of putting them on deals to match their Premier League rivals has been helped by Levy agreeing to again lift the wage ceiling set by top earner Kane.
Pochettino challenged Spurs “to be brave and take risks” at the end of the season in order to become trophy winners.
He received enough assurances that he would be backed during end of season talks with Levy to convince him to extend his stay until 2023 last month and Kane’s new deal is another pivotal move for the club’s future.
Kane has been rewarded after another stunning season in front of goal.
He scored 41 Spurs goals this season, hitting 30 in the league for the first time as he narrowly missing out on a third successive golden boot to Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
He has bagged 108 goals in 153 Premier League games and a total of 140 in 216 appearances in all competitions for Spurs.
Spurs announced news of Kane’s contract with a video of him at the new stadium which they move to in September.
Kane said: “I am really excited. It’s a proud day. It’s been a great few seasons so I’m looking forward to the future.
“The future is bright at this club. Going into the new stadium with a great young squad I’m just excited to keep on the train and see where it can go.”
