Spurs fans react to news Toby Alderweireld is likely to stay for next season

The Belgian defender has revealed he sees himself playing for Spurs next campaign

With the Champions League final inching ever closer, one big concern for Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs will be whether it marks Toby Alderweireld’s final game for the club. The Belgian’s contract expires in the summer of 2020 and all signs had pointed to the defender being cashed in on at the end of the season, but it now appears that the 30-year-old could be set to stay for the remainder of his deal.

Valued at £36m by Transfermarkt, Alderweireld insisted via the Evening Standard, that his only focus is on the team right now, and that ‘I have one year left on my contract, so in my head, I will play for Spurs next season.’ The news was met with understandable relief from Tottenham fans on social media who were beginning to dread the prospect of losing one of their star centre-backs ahead of the new season.

Some on Twitter labelled it as ‘great news’ and revealed their delight at keeping Alderweireld on board for another campaign at the very least. Indeed, many clamoured for the former Ajax man to extend his deal at the club, and joked that they’ll need the Belgium international to ‘help defend their Champions League title’ next year.

Check out some of the delighted reaction of Spurs fans on Twitter to the news Alderweireld is likely to stay for next season.
