England midfielder commits long-term future to Spurs

Northridge advised Dele Alli on his high-profile negotiation of a long-term contract extension with Tottenham Hotspur in October 2018.

The way we work with Dele embodies our approach to supporting athletes. We become a key part of the team advising a young person who has the world at his feet and unique commercial appeal. Our commercial support for Dele has run from his key apparel deal with Adidas to his ground-breaking streaming partnership with Twitch.

We provide a full range of legal services to high-profile sportspeople, helping them to structure their affairs and acting as a trusted advisor. We have unrivalled expertise in advising on player transfers, player contracts, sponsorship agreements and image rights deals.

Northridge’s roster of football clients includes legends such as Thierry Henry and Gerard Houllier, contemporary superstars including Neymar, Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Cesc Fabregas, and some of the most promising young players in the world such as Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson.

"On and off the pitch, it’s important to have a team around you that you can rely on. Northridge really understand the football industry, they are a great help to Dele across the board."
