Tottenham Hotspur Women have announced that goalkeeper Rebecca Spencer has extended her contract at the club.
Spencer, who has also played for London rivals Arsenal and West Ham United, has signed a deal until 2021 with an option to extend for a further year.
Having kept five clean sheets in her 15 games across all competitions for Spurs in 2019-20, Spencer also had the second highest save percentage in the league with 0.33 saves made on average per game, just behind Manchester City stopper Ellie Roebuck in that statistic.
Spencer has also had spells at Watford, Nottingham Forest, Gillingham, French side ASJ Soyaux, Birmingham City and Chelsea before joining the Hammers in 2018.
The 29-year-old has previously represented England at Under-19 and Under-20 level, as well as being called up to the senior squad in 2016.
