Alderweireld expects Spurs stay

Toby Alderweireld says he expects to be playing for Tottenham this season as the clock ticks down on his transfer clause.

The £25m release clause in his Spurs deal expires this Thursday and the Belgian has been of interest to Roma.

But after being made captain for Spurs’ 3-2 friendly win over Juventus, he said: “Yes [I expect to still be a Tottenham player at the start of the season].

“That’s my focus in football. Everything can go quick but all I’m doing is focusing on Spurs and being fit for the start of the season.

“I think the manager knows I am committed to the club and the team, but you never know in football. Against Juventus I was captain – so that shows the manager has trust in me and I’m showing the right attitude.

“Again, it [a club triggering the clause] can happen but my focus is on Spurs and in my head I will be playing for Spurs.

“I try to deliver the job I need to do – I’m happy and that’s it. I try to come back fit. Of course, everyone has had a good holiday but like [against Juventus] we showed, we are where we want to be at the moment.”
