Sissoko signs new Spurs deal.
Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko has signed a new contract that will keep him with the Premier League club until 2023.
After putting pen to paper on a new deal, Sissoko, who joined Spurs from Newcastle in 2016 and has made 132 appearances so far, said he is "proud" to have committed his long-term future to the Lilywhites.
"Of course I am very proud to sign a new deal with the club," the France international told Tottenham’s official website.
"That means they believe in me and are happy with what I'm doing. Hopefully I can give my best to the club for a long time and hopefully we can get some trophies together.
"I am happy with my new contract. My family and friends are very happy and proud because they know at the beginning it was maybe tough for me, but I never give up.
"I always believed in myself and tried to do my best even in the bad moments. They are happy and behind me since I started. They are very proud of my new contract."
Sissoko also said he feels like a leader at Tottenham.
"I try to be [a leader]. I have a lot of experience, I'm now 30 years old," he said. "If I can help new signings and even some players who have been at the club a long time, I'm trying to do it.
"It will be helpful for everyone. If I can give them some advice it will be no problem with me. I was young as well so I had advice from other players.
"It is always important to have something from the experienced players, so that is what I'm trying to do."
