Spurs duo agree new deals

Tottenham midfielders Jake Livermore and Tom Carroll have signed new contracts to keep them at White Hart Lane until 2016, the north London club have confirmed.

Livermore has had loan spells with MK Dons, Crewe, Derby, Peterborough, Ipswich and Leeds since stepping up from the Spurs youth set-up in 2008, but has established himself as a regular in Harry Redknapp's first-team squad this season.

The 22-year-old has appeared in 18 of the club's 21 games in all competitions and scored his first goal in the 5-0 Europa League play-off first-leg win at Hearts in August.

Carroll, 19, made his senior Tottenham debut in the second leg against Hearts after an impressive loan spell at Leyton Orient earlier this year, and received his first call-up into Stuart Pearce's England's Under-21 squad last month.
