The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern think that Toby Alderweireld is one of Europe’s best defenders…
He has enjoyed a stellar few years at White Hart Lane since moving to the club, quickly establishing a stellar partnership with Jan Vertonghen at the back of the Tottenham defence.
In truth, the fans in the pub want to see the Belgian remain a key part of proceedings for years to come, and it appears that the club do as well.
According to the Mirror, Tottenham have open talks with the player regarding the prospect of a new deal – with the club willing to give him a substantial pay rise in order to keep him in London.
Alderweireld, of course, is one of a very few players who have yet to commit their long-term future to the club. Over the past year or so, key players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli have signed on for the long haul at White Hart Lane, and Alderweireld is just as important as them to this Tottenham project.
Having secured Champions League football for next season, the Tottenham fans in the pub are demanding a better showing – and so it is important that the Lilywhites hold on to their best players. Alderweireld definitely falls into that category, and if the club want any chance of succeeding – they need to hold on to him.
Our landlord thinks that a new contract for the Belgian could prove to be the deal of the summer.
