Tottenham Hotspur have announced that Fraser Forster has just signed a new contract with the club, which will keep him in North London until 2025.
Fraser Forster signed for Tottenham last summer, to provide cover and competition for former number one, Hugo Lloris. By the end of the 2022/23 campaign, Forster had usurped the Frenchman, due to injury and poor form.
The 35-year-0ld now has 21 appearances for the Lilywhites over the last 18 months (Transfermarkt) but has found his path to regular first team football blocked once more, this time by new signing Guglielmo Vicario.
Still, with Lloris at the bottom of the pecking order, and young goalkeeper Brandon Austin not quite at Premier League level, Forster does have an important role to play in the Tottenham squad, especially if Vicario was to suffer any injury.

The club today announced that the 35-year-old has put pen to paper on a new deal which will keep him in N17 until the summer of 2025.
Discussing his new contract, Forster said: “The second I got here, I’ve loved being at the club. Loved my time here so far and I’m delighted to extend that. It’s been fantastic working with the new manager – he’s come in and everyone loves him.
“You see the atmosphere in the stadium and the stuff we’re producing, and it’s great to be a part of that. It’s great to help the team in any way I can… It’s been huge for everyone, not just the keepers, but [Postecoglou] let’s us go out and play with freedom.
“Hopefully I’ll stay as long as I can. We’ve got a fantastic group. Obviously [Vicario] has come in and he’s done great. For me, all I can keep doing is working hard in training and support the other lads.”

This is a smart move by the club. Forster is definitely good enough to be our number two keeper, and is of the right sensibility to understand that this is his role without being unhappy at not playing more.
