Alderweireld claims Spurs will decide his future

Toby Alderweireld says his future will be decided by Tottenham but has his own idea what he wants to do.

The Belgium international has just over a year left on his current contract, which includes a one-year extension option, and more than a year of talks over a new deal have yet to result in agreement.

A clause in Alderweireld’s contract states that, if Spurs trigger the year-long extension until 2020, the player can leave for a fee of £25m up to 14 days before the end of the 2019 summer transfer window.

Sky Sports News understands Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are all interested in signing the 29-year-old, who has struggled to break back into the first team following a serious injury.

Alderweireld told Belgian newspaper Dezondag: “I have another two years contract. Tottenham decides about my future.

“Of course I have my own idea. But that is not the case now.

“The past season was tough. But I’m glad that I could play the last four matches. That means that I am ready for the World Cup.”

Alderweireld made just 14 Premier League appearances last season, often being replaced in the first team by record signing Davinson Sanchez.
