Aaron's joy at new deal

Aaron Lennon couldn't hide his delight after putting pen to paper on a contract extension that will keep him at the Club until 2014.

The winger has been in flying form this season and the good news is that he feels there is much more to come.

"I'm delighted to sign a new contract," Aaron told us exclusively after training at Spurs Lodge this afternoon. "I've been here a long time now and love every minute of it.

"Everyone at the club from the managers, the fans, they've all looked after me so well.

"I think it's been my best season and to get a new deal is great for me."

The length of the deal certainly suggests 'Azza' believes this is the place he can achieve his goals. "Definitely," he stated. "If you look at the players here, the whole squad, I can learn and improve and I think I've done that.

"I feel I'm getting better and better with each season and I think I can keep on improving."

The England international - he's in the Under-21 squad for forthcoming friendlies against Norway and France - recently chalked up the 200th appearance of his senior career.

Not bad for a 21-year-old! "People tend to forget I'm only 21," he smiled. "There is a lot for me to still improve on and I'll continue to work hard on the training pitch to do that."

Manager Harry Redknapp added: "It is great news for the Club. Aaron wants to stay, we want to keep him. He is a young player with a great future. He has been fantastic since I've been here so we are delighted to have secured him long-term.

"He has got all the ability to be a top player and yet he is still learning the game.

"He is a great lad but he is not the finished article. If he keeps listening and taking on board all the good advice that he gets given - as he already has done - then I think he can go on to be a fantastic player."
