Tottenham have handed Lucas Moura a contract extension until 2024.

The Brazilian, who prior to this transfer window was Spurs' last signing in January 2018, has been rewarded for an impressive term last season.

His existing deal still had four years to run, but he has agreed terms for an extra 12 months.

The 26-year-old was a key player in Spurs' run to the Champions League final, notably in the semi-final second leg against Ajax, where his second-half hat-trick brought them back from the dead.

He scored 15 goals in 50 appearances in all competitions in a productive campaign, where he also hit the headlines for two goals in an early-season win at Manchester United.

Spurs had to wait to see the best of him as he took time to adjust following his £25million move from Paris St Germain, where up until this summer he was their last recruit.

Andy Carroll has returned to Newcastle eight-and-a-half years after his £35million move to Liverpool.

The 30-year-old striker, who was a free agent after being released by West Ham at the end of last season, has signed an initial one-year deal with the club at which he made his name.

Carroll said: "It feels very good. My friends and family are here, and it's the club that I support - it is home."

Carroll has been plagued by injuries since moving away from Tyneside and is currently working his way back from ankle surgery.

However, he is desperate to return to the form he showed in a black and white shirt.

He added: "I enjoyed the time I spent here, and hopefully I can carry on where I left off. When I left eight-and-a-half years ago, I was scoring goals and I was enjoying my football.

"It's been a pretty tough time since then, and I just want to get back to that.
