The summer signing from Ajax caught the eye during his debut season at Spurs and has been rewarded with a new deal

Davinson Sanchez has signed a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur which will tie him down to the club until the end of the 2023/24 season.

The Colombian has impressed since his £42 million move from Ajax last summer and made 41 appearances for Spurs in all competitions during the past campaign.

After initially impressing during a back-three alongside Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, Sanchez caught the eye in a two with Vertonghen after Alderweireld suffered a torn hamstring in November.

The 21-year-old played a big part in the club going 14 games unbeaten in the Premier League, which helped Tottenham secured a third consecutive top-three finish.

Sanchez didn’t have it all easy with a red card at Watford on December 2 a notable low point while he has been at fault for goals this season.

Yet given his age and his lack of experience in England, many would agree he has had a fine first campaign in the Premier League.

Spurs fans will no doubt be eager for the likes of Hugo Lloris, Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane to pen contract extensions now, but these announcements since the end of the campaign are an encouraging step in the right direction.
