Erik Lamela: I want to sign a new contract at Tottenham and ‘play for more years in this shirt’



Tottenham attacking midfielder Erik Lamela is keen to sign a new contract at White Hart Lane.

Lamela joined Tottenham from Serie A side Roma in summer 2013, signing a five-year deal with the Lilywhites - with an option to extend by a further two years.

When asked about his future with Mauricio Pochettino's side, Lamela told Standard Sport: "I would like to [sign a new deal] because I am very happy here. I feel part of this team which is improving. I have a group of excellent team-mates and I feel very good around them.

"It would make me happy to play for more years in this shirt. Will I be the next to sign? Let's hope so. At the moment I am thinking only of playing and about Saturday's game against Leicester."

Since the start of the season, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have all agreed new contracts, and according to the Evening Standard, Jan Vertonghen dropped a strong hint recently that he was on the brink of doing the same.
