Goalkeeper Luke McGee has become the second Tottenham Hotspur player to sign a new contract with the north London side in as many days. After 17-year-old centre-half Cameron Carter-Vickers penned a new deal on 29 October, 20-year-old McGee has followed suit, signing a deal that keeps him at White Hart Lane until 2019.
The shot stopper signed his first professional deal in July 2014, going on to make 18 appearances for the club's Under-21 side in the 2014-15 season. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino rewarded McGee with a starting role against AC Milan in a pre-season victory in August but the player is yet to make another first-team appearance for the club. Tottenham confirmed his new deal via the club's official website.
Carter-Vickers's three-year deal will run until 2018 and despite his tender years, the centre-half is already highly thought of at Tottenham, having also been handed his senior debut in that pre-season win over Milan.
While born in Southend, Carter-Vickers has already been called up to represent the US at Under-20 and Under-23 level and believes he is on the right path to winning a role in Pochettino's first team.
"I joined the club when I was 11 and when you are that age and you join a club like Spurs you are delighted, absolutely buzzing," he told Tottenham's official website. "I remember going to school the next day and telling all my friends. The big dream even then was to perhaps one day play for the first team.
"This new deal shows the hard work I've put in so far has paid off and now it needs to continue. I will try to play well for the Under-21s, keep working, keep improving and hopefully my chance will come."
