The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are sweating over a recent report from the Times…
The report concerns Toby Alderweireld, with the Belgian’s future seemingly coming under scrutiny. According to the report, the defender has stalled on the offer of a new deal, having already rejected two offers, with the player seemingly keen to ensure that a release clause is included in any forthcoming deal.
Indeed, it is a worrying notion for several reasons. On a basic level, Alderweireld is one of a few players yet to sign a new deal at White Hart Lane, and this is something that Daniel Levy needs to change as soon as possible.
Secondly, the fact that he is keen to see a release clause in his deal seems to hint that he doesn’t want to be tied down at White Hart Lane, leaving those in the pub fearing that he could look to leave the club in the future.
Certainly, the report has worried the fans in the Transfer Tavern, and the Tottenham supporters on Twitter have had a very similar reaction. One of real fear and concern…
Walker wants out and Alderweireld won't sign a new deal. Just when it was looking good for Spurs. Levy needs to up the wage bill.

Cannot blame Alderweireld. He would go right into every team in the world. One of the absolute finest CBs there is.

Media doing their best to break us apart. They can't stand it that their favourites Arsenal or Man Utd aren't where we are. Ignore! #COYS

Shows how far we have come. The media usually wait till June or July before trying to destabilise the club. Got them worried

simply put a release clause in at his current market rate, £100M. Far better footballer than Pogba.
