The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are devastated after hearing the latest on Toby Alderweireld’s future…
According to the Times, the Belgian defender has stalled on the proposition of signing a new deal at Tottenham, with Alderweireld reportedly insistent on the inclusion of a release clause in his contract. Significantly, the Times notes that two offers have already been rejected by the Belgian, leaving talks at an impasse.
This will come as a big blow for Tottenham, with Alderweireld undoubtedly one of the Lilywhites most important defenders in recent years. A stalwart at the back, his partnership with Jan Vertonghen has been a highlight of Mauricio Pochettino’s tenure, and the thought of the Belgian leaving the club is enough to send shivers down the spines of the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern.
Indeed, the prospect of Alderweireld leaving imminently is not something that should seemingly concern fans, but our landlord definitely thinks that Tottenham should look to secure a deal with him sooner, rather than later. After all, he is arguably one of their finest stars.
