Tottenham's first-choice left-back, for this season and hopefully those to follow, is Destiny Udogie. He joined Spurs back in the summer of 2022 before being sent on loan to his former club for the rest of the campaign.

Now, under Ange Postecoglou, he's been given a shot at Premier League football, and so far he's been outstanding.

Recently, the club sat down with Destiny to discuss his time in North London thus far, after he just finished signing a contract extension that will see his time furthered until the summer of 2030.

Speaking to the contract extension, here's what the left-back had to say: "I’m really happy... happy because to be here at this club is a big joy for me, and happy for this opportunity. From the first day I came here, I felt at home, with the players, the coaching staff, the whole club, I feel so welcome. It’s the way everyone at the club respects you, the players, everyone."

The expectations for the team have only grown over the past few months following Tottenham's incredible start to the season, and Udogie spoke about his focus at the club in that regard:

"From the first day there was just one objective: to play good, to show my best, to help the team. I'm happy for how it's going, I know we can do more, and we keep working to do more... It's a big journey so we have to stay focused and work hard everyday together."

Ange has said it many times, but Udogie seconded his words by talking about the direction Spurs are headed:

"I think we are building something big... The league is really tough, really physical and high intensity so we have to be ready. I think the staff is doing big work and it's showing on the pitch... I think it's going to be a good season, it's a long way to go, so we just have to stay focused, and every day I will try to do my best."

Tottenham go up against Nottingham Forest this Friday as Spurs look to build off their win over the weekend, and Udogie will once again be crucial to the effort.
