Spurs midfielder Jack Roles who played for the U-23 squad has extended his contract for two years. The 20 year old is now set to remain a Spurs player for the foreseeable future. At the club since 2015, Roles is a central midfielder who can also play as an attacking midfielder.
Jack Roles played 19 games in the Premier League 2 for the Spurs age group team and scored 9 goals while also assisting a further 3. A goal scoring midfielder is always a valuable asset and if Jack Roles continues his progress, he may soon get a shot with the first team.
Jack Roles: The Spurs Midfielder who can be next Dele Alli
For now however, he isn’t expected to move mountains. A loan move to the Championship maybe on the cards. The fact that he extended his contract was welcome news to all Spurs fans who saw his post on social media. They were later left puzzled as the Spurs midfielder swiftly removed his post announcing the contract extension.

The reason for the removal of the post were not clear immediately but it was certainly suspicious. Regardless, it doesn’t matter if he deleted the said post, the fact remains that he has signed an extension to the contract. Tottenham have had some senior players stalling on contract extensions before announcing their intention to leave.

Reports indicate his new deal runs until 2021. Giving both the player and the club enough time to work on their end and when the time is right to decide his future. A player of his abilities will be snapped up in a moment by teams below the Premier League.
Roles is likened to Dele Alli in that he has a good shot in him from afar and has been consistently scoring goals through the U-18s all the way to the U-23s. If he stays on and continues his progression, it would be interesting to see what he might yet become. There’s huge potential in the lad and signing a new contract is the right step for him.
Jack Roles represents the Cyprus U-21 squad even though he would be eligible for England, being born in London.
