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.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Just get it done Levy.He is probably the best central defender in the PL and his partnership with Vertongen is undoubtedly the best pairing.Good as Sanchez has been since his arrival he is not the finished article and could not directly replace Toby.Pay the man his worth and get the contract finalised.

  2. Total non story. By rehashing mainstream media tittle tattle you’re just as bad. Unlike them though you’re supposed to be a spurs blog. How does this help the team? There is no problem with Alderweireld. He needs to be fit to play the intense football and high defensive line that Poch demands. He’ll probably play against Rochdale. In the summer his contract will be sorted. Relax. And find something positive to write about. We’re having our best spell for ages so you must be able to think of something.
