Destiny Udogie has inked a new deal with Tottenham Hotspur that extends until 2030, the London team has announced.
The left-back left Udinese in the summer of 2022 to join Spurs, where he played one more season on loan in Italy before making a permanent move to England.
The news that Tottenham and Udogie were nearing finalising the conditions of a new long-term commitment was first published by TBIS on Monday. The north London club verified the information earlier today.
Regarding his new contract, Udogie stated, “I’m thrilled,” via Spurs’ official channels. “I consider it a great pleasure to be here at this club, therefore I’m pleased for the chance and the pleasure it brings. “From the first day I came in, I felt at home. With the players, the coaching staff and the club. I feel so welcome and happy to be here.”
With his inverted role, which requires him to play both attacking midfielder and touchline winger at times, Udogie has immediately become a fan favourite in north London and has featured regularly under new head coach Ange Postecoglou.
The Premier League season began with him making his competitive Tottenham debut in a 2-2 draw away at Brentford. Since then, he has almost always been part of Postecoglou’s starting eleven, missing just two games.
After scuttling through the defence and converting a close-range cross from Son Heung-min, Udogie scored his first goal for Spurs in Sunday’s 4-1 victory over Newcastle United at home.
In October, Udogie made his debut as a senior member of the Italy national team, following an outstanding start to his time at Tottenham.
