Tottenham Hotspur fans respond to Dele Alli on Twitter as he says he can't wait to get started

Tottenham midfielder is eager to get started.

While many footballers are still on their summer breaks, or have not yet departed for them due to international commitments, Spurs midfielder Dele Alli is ready to get started for next season.

The mid-season signing from MK Dons took to Twitter last night to detail he has returned from his post-season break and can't wait to get back playing again.

Alli was loaned back to the League One side for the remainder of the 2014/15 season, and so is preparing to train with and play for Premier League side Tottenham for the first time, and ready to graft to be successful.

Spurs fans took it upon themselves to show Alli how eager they are to see him in action for the club by replying and making him feel welcome.

At present it is to be determined whether Alli will spend next season with Spurs, or if head coach Mauricio Pochettino sees more value in sending him on loan to a side in either the Championship or the Premier League.

There is plenty of competition in central midfield, with returning loanee Tom Carroll eager to make an impact too, along with Alex Pritchard.

It will be up to Alli to work hard as he intends to during pre-season to show his new boss that it will be mutually beneficial to have him play a role in 2015/16, and that he is capable of making the instant step up from League One.
