Spurs fans split over Alderweireld update

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld has claimed that he expects to stay at the club this summer, per Sport360 via the London Evening Standard, leaving fans with mixed feelings.

The defender has a £25million release clause in his contract that can be activated this summer.

With his current deal expiring at the end of next season, there has been much discussion over his future, with many Spurs fans expecting him to depart in this transfer window.

But he has now hinted that he could still be a Tottenham player in 2019-20.

He said: “I’m going to say the same thing that I’ve been saying for the past couple of years.

“The only focus is Spurs, because of this focus I think I had a good season as well. I have one year left on my contract, so in my head, I will play for Spurs next season.”

Alderweireld has played a key role in Spurs’ season, making 49 appearances in all competitions as Mauricio Pochettino’s men finished in the Premier League top four and reached the Champions League final.

He will likely bring up the half-century on Saturday in Madrid, when Spurs take on Liverpool as they bid to win the trophy for the first time in their history.

But fans remain split over whether or not he will stay at the club; with some believing he will simply leave on a free transfer next summer and others believing it is a sign that he intends to extend his current contract.
