Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed their midfielder Tom Carroll has committed his future to the north London club after signing an extension on 16 September, Friday. The new deal will keep him at the White Hart Lane until 2019.
The 24-year-old joined his club's academy in 2008 and came up through the ranks of Spurs' youth system, before making his debut for the first team in the Europa League clash against Hearts in 2011. Since then, he has made 54 appearances for his club, while also spending time at Leyton Orient, Derby County, Queens Park Rangers and Swansea City on loans.
Carroll becomes fourth midfielder to commit his future to Mauricio Pochettino's side in the month of September. Eric Dier, Christian Eriksen and Harry Winks were the other three who signed contract extensions this month.
A statement on Tottenham's official website read, "We are delighted to announce that Tom Carroll has signed a new contract with the Club which will run until 2019."
"The 24-year-old has risen through the ranks of the Club and has made 54 appearances and scored three goals since making his senior debut against Hearts in August 2011 in the Europa League. Carroll is a former youth international and made 18 appearances for England's Under-21 side."
Carroll went on to make 30 appearances for Tottenham in the 2015/16 season, which was his best campaign in Spurs shirt. The midfielder remains hopeful he can impress the former Southampton manager this term in order to be a regular figure in the starting line-up.
"It went really well for me, especially around Christmas and New Year," he said. "I'm happy to be rewarded with this new deal and I've got to do it all over again now and impress the manager," Carroll told Tottenham's official website.
"We've a top squad here full of international players, so it's hard but you have to keep your head down, keep working hard every day and see where it takes you. I know if I get a chance I have to take it."
