Jamie O’Hara has signed a new contract to extend his stay at the Club for a further three years, committing his future to White Hart Lane until 2011.

The 21-year-old Academy graduate broke into the First Team this season when he came off the substitutes bench to help create the winning goal against Portsmouth at Fratton Park and has since gone on to make a total of 25 appearances for the Club, scoring twice.

His performances have also been recognised at international level after he made his England Under-21 debut in the recent friendly with Poland at Molineux, while he has also been included in the squad for Thursday’s match against Wales’ Under-21 side.

A starter against Liverpool yesterday, Jamie’s contribution to the season was rewarded when he was presented with the One Hotspur Junior Young Player of the Year Award along with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust Breakthrough Award for season 2007/08 after the match.

Head Coach Juande Ramos said: “Jamie has earned his time on the pitch this season. He has come a long way in a short space of time so I congratulate him and this new contract is recognition of his efforts. If he continues in the same vein he will become a very important player for us.

“Jamie is an example to all the young players at the Club in that reaching the First Team can be achieved through hard work and giving the best of yourself.

Jamie added: “The boss is building a squad that is going to be up there challenging for honours and to be told that I am part of his long-term plans by giving me a three-year deal is good for me. I just want to keep showing him that I want to progress and become one of the top players at Tottenham Hotspur.

“To have another three seasons at the club that I have always wanted to play for is great and now I just can’t wait for pre-season to begin.”
