According to reports in the Daily Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are in discussions with defender Toby Alderweireld over a new contract and they are optimistic that the Belgian will put pen-to-paper.
The Belgian has been a huge success since joining the north London outfit from Atletico Madrid in 2015, and he has helped Spurs challenge for the Premier League title in consecutive seasons after forming a strong partnership with Jan Vertonghen at the heart of the defence.
Mauricio Pochettino is now keen to tie the 28-year-old down to a new deal, but The Times had reported last month that talks between the two parties had stalled because of a disagreement over an inclusion of a release clause in the contract.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on the update regarding Alderweireld via social media, and they want the Belgium international to commit his future to the club in what some think would be the “most important deal” of the summer.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
