Aaron Lennon put an end to speculation about his future by penning a contract extension to keep him at Tottenham Hotspur until 2014.

The 21-year-old winger, who signed from Leeds in 2005, has been one of Spurs' star performers this season and tipped for a recall to the England squad.

There had been some speculation that Lennon could leave Tottenham during the summer and Liverpool were linked with a move for his services.

However, Spurs yesterday moved to secure Lennon's future, extending his contract by two years.

"He has signed an extension to his contract and he is here for the next five years, which is good news for the club," Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp said on Sky Sports News.

"He wants to stay and we want to keep him. We'd had no enquiries anyway.

"He is a young player with a great future. He has been fantastic since I've been here so we are delighted to have secured him long-term.

"He has got all the ability, he's so quick. But he's still learning and he's not the finished article yet.

"If he keeps listening and learning he could go on to become a fantastic player."
