Lennon Signs New Deal

Throughout this troubled season, there has been little consistency to savor on. However, one of them is the form of Aaron Lennon. He has gone on the effectively end David Bentley’s Spurs career before it had the chance to get going. Harry Redknapp has recentley tipped Lennon to earn a recall to Fabio Capello’s England side, and that faith has now been repaid, the nippy winger signing a contract extension; not only keeping him at White Hart Lane, but also handing him the oppertunity to play at the club’s proposed new stadium, until 2014.

Lennon signed for the North London club from Leeds back in 2005, for a fee of just £1m, and has gone on to make over 200 appearences in his professional career, still at the tender age of 21. The new deal seems to have finally put to bed rumours that Rafael Benitez will splash the cash to bring the Englishman to Anfield in the summer, and the length of the deal suggests Lennon is Redknapp’s ideal player to adopt the right-sided role for many years to come.

Fans of the club will, no doubt, see this deal as one of Redknapp’s best pieces of business since taking the helm at White Hart Lane, and Harry is just as pleased to have secured the new contract. He said: “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.”
