Though talks were meant to begin last December about a new contract, Tottenham are yet to put an offer on the table for Belgian centre back Toby Alderweireld.
The player told Sky Sports News that he is happy at the North London club, despite the absence of a new deal. “I had a good conversation with the manager. I told him I’m focused on football, to keep my game up and help the team,” said Alderweireld who is currently preparing for Belgium’s World Cup qualifier against Bosnia on Saturday.
The central defender has been a stalwart in the heart of a well-drilled Spurs defence for the past three seasons, and was instrumental in the club’s unbeaten season at White Hart Lane last campaign. Alderweireld’s contract does not expire until 2019, but Spurs have been vigilant when it comes to their star players’ contracts, and have tied players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli to long-term deals.
Daniel Levy is a smart businessman and if he wants to keep hold of Alderweireld then a contract will certainly be arranged, but for now the defender is focussed on international success as Belgium have already guaranteed qualification to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
