Toby Alderweireld hints he could stay at Tottenham amid Manchester United interest

Toby Alderweireld has suggested he would be open to staying at Tottenham beyond this summer.

The defender saw his playing time limited during the 2017/18 season due to injuries and reports of a stalemate over a new contract.

Alderweireld has just over a year left on his current contract, which includes a one-year extension option, and more than a year of talks over a new deal have yet to result in agreement.

Manchester United are among the clubs interested in the 29-year-old, but, asked he if could stay at Tottenham, Alderweireld said: “Yeah, why not?

“I have two years left on my contract. I don’t know what is going to happen.”

Alderweireld is currently away with Belgium at the World Cup and will face some of his Tottenham team-mates when Belgium and England meet in their final Group G game.

While Belgium are among the favourites to win the World Cup, Alderweireld also thinks England are going to enjoy a “very good” tournament.

“I have been in the Premier League for four years and something is different with England now,” he said.

“They are young lads, there is a lot of desire. There is a new vibe coming. They have wonderful players, not just stars but players who want to become better.

“I think they are going to have a very good World Cup. England can do whatever they want if they are on it. They are a very good team.

“I know most of the players. They have the right mentality to go far now. They have quality and desire, players with a good attitude.”
