An article on talkSPORT says Mauricio Pochettino has refused to discuss rumours surrounding the future of star defender Toby Alderweireld.

It adds that we are reportedly locked in talks with the Belgian over a new deal, with his current contract due to expire in June 2019.

It goes on to describe how the centre-back is attracting interest from the likes of Premier League rivals  Chelsea and Manchester United, as well as La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

However Pochettino, speaking at a press conference,has refused to be drawn on the matter and he has labelled the speculation as nothing but rumours.

“I am not going to speak about rumours. You know very well I never speak about rumour,”:said Pochettino.There are many rumours about different players in the media and different rumours about myself too.
“You know I am not going to speak about rumours.”

So he Toby saga rumbles on with little sign of a resolution anytime soon.
