The midfielder made a huge impression on the White Hart Lane crowd when he made his first home start against Everton on New Year's Day with a superb two-goal display. He has pretty much been in every squad since then and is now hoping to once again thrust himself back into the starting XI frame.
"I am really pleased, but obviously looking to push on now," commented Deano.
"I gave it a little bit of thought because I am 21 now and needed to look at the best options as far as playing goes. I sat down and spoke to the gaffer who said good things - as soon as I heard that was it.
"If you get the opportunity to stay at a Premiership club where you are highly thought of there is no decision to be made really. It means a lot to me because I have been here some years now and had another taste of first team football just after Christmas.
"I want to establish myself as a regular. The next couple of years are important for me but, at the moment, I am just focusing on the next three games."
The now England under-21 international added that he was put under no pressure to repeat his turn of the year heroics.
"The gaffer spoke to me before the next game and told me not to expect too much, what happened before was special but was not going to happen every week."
Pushing on was uppermost in Dean Marney's thoughts when he gave his reaction to signing a new contract to extend his stay at the club.
