By Milcah  Tanimu

Tottenham Hotspur has officially announced the extension of a new contract with promising Nigerian forward Damola Ajayi. The confirmation came through a statement on the club’s official website, solidifying Ajayi’s commitment to the team.

Earlier reports from Allnigeriasoccer.com in November 2023 had indicated ongoing negotiations between Tottenham and Ajayi for a new contract, with the anticipation that he would sign his inaugural professional agreement.

Tottenham has now confirmed the successful completion of the deal, revealing that Ajayi has transitioned into the professional ranks with the club. The young talent commenced the 2023-2024 season as a second-year scholar, and without the new contract, he would have become a free agent at the end of the campaign.

Ajayi has garnered high praise from the first-team coaches at Tottenham, having trained with senior players during the pre-season tour to Australia and Asia for the 2023-2024 campaign. Additionally, he had the honor of being named in the provisional squad for a Premier League clash against Leeds United in the previous season, traveling with the first team to Elland Road as the 21st player.

A vital member of the Spurs side that clinched the U17 and U18 Premier League Cup double in the 2022-2023 season, Ajayi has showcased his skills across various youth competitions, including the U18 Premier League, Premier League 2, FA Youth Cup, EFL Trophy, and U18 Premier League Cup, contributing seven goals to his name this season.
