A day does not seem to go by when Tottenham Hotspur fans do not discuss the future of Toby Alderweireld.
Many are desperate for the Belgian centre-back to stay at the club, but because he is yet to put pen to paper on a new contract, doubts have risen.
The uncertainty has not been helped by the fact that manager Mauricio Pochettino played Alderweireld in just four Premier League games following the defender’s return from a hamstring injury in February.
There has still not been any official word from Spurs regarding the Belgian’s future, but it became a talking point among fans when the North London club made an announcement on Tuesday.
Tottenham confirmed that they had extended their deal with betting partner William Hill.
In fairness to the club, in the last few days they have announced fresh contracts for Kyle Walker-Peters and Davinson Sanchez, but many wished that the news was related to a certain someone.
The next time you tweet something containing the words 'multi-year extension' it better have a massive photo of Toby's face attached to it
