Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking ahead to their FA Cup semi-final clash with Manchester United, however, they will take on Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League first.
Spurs will head to the AMEX on Tuesday night and Mauricio Pochettino is set to recall Toby Alderweireld to the squad, according to the Daily Mail. The media outlet claim the Belgium international could be involved despite his future at the club remain unclear.
The centre-back has spent much of 2018 on the sidelines with an injury he suffered, however, a contract dispute between him and the club has appeared to also leave him out of favour with his boss, although his manager has stated he will be with the team.
“Toby will be in the squad,” he told The Daily Mail.
“But I will decide if he plays tomorrow.”
The defender is rumoured to have attracted interest from a number of teams in the past and it is believed Pochettino will not stand in the way should someone make an acceptable offer for him. As you can imagine, after their thrashing at the hands of Man City, the punters propping up our bar would love to see him.
The Tottenham fans in the Tavern will be pleased that Alderweireld can be involved with the first-team once again with a number of locals hoping he can play well and build his valuation up. Punters are resigned to him leaving the club in the summer but will hope he continues to put 100% into his matches.
