Destiny Udogie, a left back, has a new long-term contract with Tottenham Hotspur after the club offered him a wage increase to remain in North London.
Fabrizio Romano, who asserts that Destiny Udogie will now remain at Tottenham Hotspur for an extended period of time, says as much.
In2022, Udogie finalized his £15 million transfer from Udinese by signing an official contract with Tottenham.
Before Udogie began his Premier League career this season, Spurs permitted him to spend the previous season on loan at Udinese.
Tottenham has now taken action to guarantee the future of the 21-year-old, who has shown exceptional play thus far this season.
Destiny Udogie is a Tottenham Hotspur supporter.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham and Udogie have reached a consensus to extend Udogie’s contract.
Romano believes that a ‘long term deal’ is now in place and is ‘all done’ with Udogie putting pen-to-paper on new terms.
Romano adds that Tottenham have given Udogie a pay rise having been left impressed with his start to life in the Premier League.
This has been a great 24 hours or so for Udogie, who scored the opener for Tottenham in a 4-1 win over Newcastle United on Sunday.

The really impressive thing with Udogie is how he has completely changed his style of play under Ange Postecoglou.
Udogie was a left wing back for Udinese, flying up the flank and providing real width for the Serie A side.
Postecoglou plays an entirely different way though, not only pushing his full backs infield but even moving them forward to become additional attacking midfielders.
That is something Udogie would not have been familiar with but Tottenham are seeing him develop and thrive in that role.
The sky is the limit for Udogie and Tottenham will be very, very happy to have secured his future for years to come, as he should become a vital part of Postecoglou’s side.
