Spurs extend Dawson stay

11 May 2007 - 11:54:33

Tottenham Hotspur central defender Michael Dawson has signed a contract extension to keep him at White Hart Lane until the summer of 2012.

The 23-year-old England squad member has proved to be a consistent performer since his arrival from Nottingham Forest in January 2005, playing in all but one of Spurs' games this season.

Dawson told the club's official website: "It's really great that the club has looked to reward me with a new contract.

"I still had four years left on my contract, so this represents a further commitment on both my and the club's behalf."

Spurs head coach Martin Jol added: "I am delighted that Michael has signed a further extension to his contract. He is exactly the kind of player that will be part of a bright future for our club.

"I've said it before and maybe there are other contenders as well, but he is my player of the season.

"I had a problem in the centre with Anthony Gardner and Ledley King being out, but Michael Dawson is always there and I think everybody recognises the honesty in his game."
