£42m star speaks after agreeing deal with Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Davinson Sanchez has spoken for the first time after putting pen to paper on a new deal at the club.

The 21-year-old secured a move to Spurs from Ajax during last summer in a £42m deal and his debut season has been full of positive displays.

Sanchez has maintained a starting role in Mauricio Pochettino’s team and the Tottenham manager has certainly kept faith in him as well.

After agreeing to sign a new deal at the club, Sanchez reflected on his first season as a member of Spurs’ bright squad.

“I’ve enjoyed it so much this season because I have quality team-mates, I have quality staff guiding me and I have a quality training ground to work at,” said the defender

“I’ve learned so much from everyone, not just from the other centre-backs like Jan (Vertonghen), like Toby (Alderweireld), Juan (Foyth), and also Victor (Wanyama) and Eric Dier when they play in this position but I pick up things from every player and of course from the gaffer.

“He was a defender, he’s shown me a lot of videos on how to improve and I can say okay, the gaffer is close to me because every time he tries to show me the best way to play, I try to do what he is thinking. For me, Tottenham was a big step but now I enjoy everything.”
