The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Toby Alderweireld stays at the club for years…
Since moving to White Hart Lane from Atletico Madrid, the defender has been nothing short of a revelation. Establishing himself as one of the Premier League best centre-halves, his partnership with Jan Vertonghen has been a big reason why the Lilywhites have been able to progress so much in recent years.
That makes it all the more baffling, then, that the Belgian has yet to sign a new deal with Tottenham. The London-based outfit have spent much of the last season ensuring the futures of some of their most important players, but surprisingly, Alderweireld has been markedly absent from such discussions.
However, despite that, the defender has recently confirmed that he is still preparing to play for Tottenham next season, with the defender seemingly not planning on leaving the club due to the lack of discussion. Speaking to Belgian reporters, via the Independent, he said: “I’m still waiting for a contract proposal…But in my mind I’m playing for Spurs next season”.
This admission was met with a loud cheer in the Transfer Tavern, with every single Tottenham fan absolutely delighted at the news. He is a real fan favourite amongst the Lilywhites in the pub, with his consistent performances certainly not going unnoticed amongst the White Hart Lane faithful.
He was crucial for Tottenham last season, picking up 30 appearances in the English top flight.
