Tottenham’s pursuit of their former academy prospect Noni Madueke has been dealt a hammer blow as the winger has signed a new contract with PSV. The 19-year-old sensation has caught the eye of several of Europe’s elite clubs with his excellent form in the Eredivisie. 

Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo remains keen to make additions to his squad despite an excellent start to the season.  

The North Londoners have won both of their Premier League fixtures so far under the new head coach. They stunned Manchester City on the opening day, with Son Heung-min scoring the only goal of an entertaining game.  

That victory was followed by a 1-0 win over Nuno’s former club Wolves on Sunday.  

Goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, defender Cristian Romero and winger Bryan Gil all appear to have settled in well following their arrivals over the summer.

However, Nuno seemingly wants to sign another forward to bolster his attacking options. Madueke and his former Wolves sensation Adama Traore have both been linked.  

Their shortlist has been narrowed down, though, as PSV announced that Madueke has signed a new deal with the club until 2025.  

The England U21 winger has taken Dutch football by storm since turning down a scholarship at Spurs in 2018. He moved to PSV amid reported interest from Manchester United.  

He made his debut for the Red and Whites in January 2020 before enjoying a breakthrough campaign in 2020-21.

Madueke made 31 appearances across all competitions and scored eight goals. He has started the new season by netting four times in eight matches.  

PSV’s director of football, John De Jong, said: “There was a lot of interest from foreign clubs in Noni, but we wanted to connect Noni to PSV even longer.  

“After good talks with Noni and his family, he succeeded in extending his contract until 2025.  

“As a club, we are very happy that Noni will stay and we look forward to a successful collaboration.”

It is not all bad news for Spurs, though, as star striker Harry Kane has revealed that he will be staying at the club beyond the summer transfer window.  

Kane had been the subject of public transfer interest from Man City.  

The 28-year-old is believed to have wanted to leave the North Londoners in pursuit of silverware, but the club were not willing to sell as he still has three years remaining on his contract. 

“It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks,” Kane wrote on social media.  

“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success.” 

Spurs face the second leg of their Europa Conference League tie against Pacos Ferreira on Thursday. They trail 1-0 on aggregate from the opening clash.
