Tottenham Hotspur captain Michael Dawson has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2016, the Mail Online understands.
The 29 year old has been at White Hart Lane since 2005, when he left Nottingham Forest in a double deal that saw Andy Reid move with him.
He has made over 200 league appearances for the North London club, and was part of the squad that secured qualification for the Champions League in 2010, and helped them make the quarter finals in the competition the following season.
The Yorkshire born defender looked set to leave Spurs last summer with a move to Queens Park Rangers looking likely, only for him to remain with Andre Villas-Boas’ men and establish himself as a first choice centre-back.
Internationally, he has been capped four times for England, with his last appearance coming in a 2-0 Euro 2012 Qualification victory over Wales two-and-a-half years ago.
