Dele Alli made his 200th appearance for Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend against Wolves, becoming the ninth-member in the current squad to reach that milestone.
The 23-year-old has spent four and a half years in North London after making a £5 million move from Milton Keynes in February 2015 before being loaned straight back to the League One side (BBC).
In 2015/16 season, Dele made his debut under Mauricio Pochettino as a substitute against Manchester United. Two weeks later the midfielder scored his first goal in lilywhite, scoring the equalizer in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City. (Wikipedia)

A hamstring injury saw the 23-year-old miss the majority of the opening parts of the campaign before playing his first full 90 minutes against Watford on 19 November.
The Spurs midfielder took to Twitter this evening as he reached his 200th appearance at the club.
The Spurs midfielder mentioned the unbelievable journey so far, reaching the Champions League final being one highlight, but does acknowledge the problems faced over in his career.
Delighted to have made my 200th appearance for Spurs. Feels like yesterday I made my debut. It’s been an unbelievable journey so far, full of ups and downs but wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Thank you all for your continued support ?? #COYS pic.twitter.com/BTKTEuC69H

Dele Alli is one of the best midfielders in the league when on the form. At the age of 23-years-old, he has time to develop and grow. But constant injury problems have affected Dele in the last two seasons. If he can stay for the remainder of the season, I expect him to be one of our best players under Jose Mourinho.
