Tottenham Hotspur have announced that Rianna Dean has extended her contract until 2021 with an option of a further year.
Dean has been Spurs top scorer for the last two consecutive seasons since signing from Millwall Lionesses in 2018.
During Tottenham’s promotion campaign in 2018-19 the striker hit 14 goals in 19 FA Women’s Championship starts.
England under 21 international started her career at north London rival’s Arsenal before making the move to Millwall Lionesses.
She signed her first full-time professional contract with Tottenham ahead of the 2019/20 campaign and then went on to score on her WSL debut away to West Ham United in the London Stadium.
She played 14 of the 15 games that Spurs played in the Women’s Super League season before it was cut short due to the ongoing health crisis.
She scored nine goals in the season for the Lily Whites before the campaign was ended with immediate effect on May 25th.
Speaking to TottenhamHotspur.com Dean said “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.”
