Alderweireld insists he is happy at Tottenham

08 Octobre 2017

Toby Alderweireld is set to leave Tottenham next summer as his contract stalemate takes a new twist, according to a reliable journalist.

The centre-back joined Spurs from Atletico Madrid in 2015 and has 18 months left of his present deal, with the London outfit having the option to extend that by a year, but the Belgian confirmed that he has not been offered new terms.

The Belgian worldwide is now on a £50,000 a week contract which is set to expire in 2019.

Alderweireld's agent said in September that the Spurs should offer the defender a "correct contract" or a transfer out of White Hart Lane, though manager Mauricio Pochettino later said that the 28-year-old is fully committed to the club.

It would come as no surprise to many that Liverpool are on the hunt for a new centre-back to solidify their shaky defence, but Alderweireld himself declared earlier this week that he is happy at Tottenham.

The 28-year-old Antwerp-born Belgium global is adamant he is relaxed over the lack of progress in agreeing new contract terms for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

When asked about whether he has entered talks with the club over a possible new deal, Alderweireld replied saying, "No, like I said, I am focused on football".

"I think it's great for Jan that he will beat that record, and he can stay an worldwide for a while yet", said Alderweireld.

"They can offer more money but is it a step forward in a football way?" You can see I'm happy there, and I try to help the team, and that's the way I always play football. "The rest, I don't know, we will see about that", Alderweireld said.

"We'll be very proud of him if he achieves this".
