Tottenham have announced midfielder Erik Lamela has signed a new contract which will run until 2022.

The 26-year-old Argentina winger joined Spurs from Roma in 2013 and has scored 23 goals in 154 appearances for the Premier League club.

"We are delighted to announce that Erik Lamela has signed a new contract with the club, which will run until 2022," Tottenham said in a statement on the club website.

Lamela was sidelined for more than a year after suffering a hip problem on 2016, returning to action on November 28 last year as a late substitute in the 2-1 defeat at Leicester.

The midfielder went on to make 33 appearances over the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign, and scored twice as Spurs beat the Foxes 5-4 at Wembley on the final day of the season in May.
