Lennon signs long-term Spurs deal
Aaron Lennon
Lennon's performances have earned him England recognition
Tottenham's England winger Aaron Lennon has signed a new five-and-a-half year contract, which keeps him at White Hart Lane until 2012.

Since joining from Leeds in July 2005, the 19-year-old has made 48 appearances and scored four goals, as well as earning seven England caps.

"He is a great talent now and there is so much more still to come," manager Martin Jol told the club website.

"He is a prime example of the exciting talent we are attracting to the club."

Jol added: "Aaron has taken his chances and made himself into a regular first-team player in a short space of time and we often forget how young he still is."

The player was clearly happy to tie-up his long-term future.

"I'm feeling really settled here at the club and I'm thoroughly enjoying my football," said Lennon.

"There is a terrific spirit in the squad and we have everything to play for this season."
