Rianna Dean has signed a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur Women that will run until 2021, with the option to extend for a further year.

Dean has been the leading goalscorer at Spurs for the past two seasons, netting 27 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions since arriving from Millwall Lionesses.

The England U-21 international signed her first full-time professional contract ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, before scoring on her full debut against West Ham at the London Stadium.

Dean told tottenhamhotspur.com: “When committing my future to Spurs, I never had any doubts, I’ve really enjoyed my time at the club so far and since I arrived, I’ve never looked back.

“I’ve been extremely fortunate and thankful for the opportunities that I’ve had here already, and Karen (Hills) and Juan (Amoros) have really had an impact on me and I feel that I am becoming a better player. I just want to help the team and Club as much as I can, master the number nine position and be the best that I can be – I feel I can achieve that here at Spurs.”

Wales centre-back Anna Filbey has also signed a new one-year contract with the club.
