‘Debut goal off Son Heung-min pass’ Udogie signs new long-term deal with Tottenham… Extension confirmed until 2029
Tottenham Hotspur and Destiny Udogie are set to sign a long-term deal.
“Tottenham have agreed a long-term deal with Udogie,” the UK’s The Athletic reports. His current contract runs until 2027, but he will sign a new deal that includes a pay rise.”
The Italian full-back joined Tottenham from Udinese in 2022. The transfer fee paid by Tottenham was around €18 million. Udinese then sent him back on loan to help him develop.
Since returning from his loan spell, Udogie has become an indispensable player for Tottenham this season. He has excelled in the offense and has earned a starting spot at left fullback. He started 14 of their 16 English Premier League (EPL) matches, scoring one goal and providing two assists. He was also called up to the Italian national team for the A-Match Week in October, where he made his debut.
He scored his debut goal with an assist from Son Heung-min. Udogie played the ball to Son in the 26th minute of the first leg against Newcastle United on Dec. 12, and then cut into the center of the box. The South Korean striker beat Kieran Trippier and sent in a ground-ball cross, which he slotted home for the first goal. It was a moment that confirmed Udogie’s quality.
After seeing how good Udogie was, Tottenham immediately pushed to re-sign him. Udogie agreed and the deal was quickly finalized. According to European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, the contract will run until June 2029, with an option to extend for another year. 헤라카지노
Tottenham have a number of injuries on the left side of defense. They had Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon, but both players have been out since the start of the season with long-term injuries. Udogie also had a hamstring problem, but thankfully it didn’t lead to a major injury. After a short break in November when he was dropped from the Italian national team, he returned to action and has continued to excel.
