Toby Alderweireld planning Tottenham stay amid £25 million clause

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld is adamant that he is happy to stay at the club for another year.

The Belgian defender’s £25 million clause becomes active in the summer until the final two weeks after Spurs extended his deal by an additional year.

However, Alderweireld has now downplayed that the clause necessarily signals the end of his time in North London.

Tottenham have been handed a huge boost as they look to keep hold of Alderweireld beyond next summer.

The 29-year-old claims he is happy at Tottenham and is looking to play for at least another year for the club.

He claims that his performances demonstrate that he is fully committed to the North London club.

Alderweireld said:

“I’m very happy to stay another year

“It was (a clause) in my contract and I’m happy Spurs gave me the confidence to stay another year.

“I am only focussed on things on the pitch.

“People can see every time I play that I give 100 per cent for this club.

“This is what I keep doing every time I play.

“This is my fourth season and I’m very happy. I’m doing everything to help the team.”

Carabao Cup review: Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea

Following a controversial VAR assisted goal, Tottenham take a slender 1-0 lead to Stamford Bridge in two weeks time.

Harry Kane’s spot-kick proved to be the difference between the two teams at Wembley in the first-leg.

The technology deemed the 25-year-old not be offside in the build-up to him fouled by Kepa Arrizabalaga inside the penalty area.
