Dele Alli has expressed his determination to force his way into the Tottenham Hotspur starting lineup next season.
The 19-year-old, who agreed a move to the North Londoners from MK Dons back in January, has been tipped to leave the club on loan over the coming weeks.
However, Alli has insisted that his intention is to remain at White Hart Lane.
"I'm not going to lie, it's going to be hard [to break into the first team] and it's going to be a challenge, but it's one I believe I'm ready to take," he told FourFourTwo.
"As far as I'm concerned I'm at Tottenham to play and I'm going to work hard to make sure that happens. We've got a great team here with some great players who I'm really looking forward to working with.
"I'm just going to train as hard as I can, work as hard as I can and wherever I'm needed that's where I'll play."
It is believed that Alli cost Spurs around £5m.
