The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been delighted with the rate at which their side is securing new contracts this season…
However, one player that has remained markedly absent from Tottenham’s list of contract signees is Toby Alderweireld – and it appears as though we now know the reason.
According to the Evening Standard, Alderweireld is seeking pay parity with Tottenham’s highest earners if he is to sign on, with the Belgian looking to earn as much as Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris going forward. Indeed, it doesn’t appear as though there is much reason for concern for the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern yet, with the publication noting that an agreement should be found eventually.
Alderweireld has been absolutely crucial for Tottenham this season, with the Belgian offering stalwart-like defending as part of an impressive defence.
Tottenham have done well this year, and currently look like the side most likely to challenge Chelsea for the Premier League title this season. They currently sit 10 points behind the league leaders, with an FA Cup clash between the two London titans set to take place in a few weeks time.
