Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has signed a contract extension until 2021.

He's on course to lead Spurs to a second placed finish in the Premier League this season, after managing fifth spot in his first campaign in charge.

While they were unable to push Leicester aside in their title run, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy says the Argentine's brought a "tremendous spirit and ethos" to the club. Pochettino's coaching staff have also agreed new deals.

The move comes just a few days after Pochettino was spotted having dinner with former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, fueling speculation that the two may have been discussing the Argentine taking over at Old Trafford after Louis Van Gaal.
