Rianna Dean and Anna Filbey have signed new one-year contracts with one-year options with Tottenham Hotspur.

Wales centre-back Filbey joined Spurs from Arsenal in 2018 and helped the club win promotion to the Women’s Super League a year later.

England Under-21 forward Dean is Spurs’ top scorer for the past two seasons, netting 27 goals in 43 appearances.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at the club so far and since I arrived, I’ve never looked back,” she said.

“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.”

Dean scored nine goals during the 2019-20 season which was halted by the coronavirus pandemic and officially ended last week, with Tottenham finishing seventh in the WSL table on a points-per-game basis.
