Tottenham Hotspur will make one final attempt to agree a new contract with Toby Alderweireld.
The Belgian defender’s situation at Spurs has been well documented over the past few months. His current deal is due to expire next summer but has a clause that enables the club to extend it by 12 months.
However, the same clause also allows Alderweireld to leave next summer for £25.4 million before the final 14 days of the transfer window.
According to Belgian news outlet HLN, Spurs are prepared to re-open contract negotiations with the 29-year-old who was heavily linked with moves to Manchester United, PSG and Bayern Munich during the current transfer window.
Alderweireld is said to earn around £60,000-a-week within his current deal at the club from when he joined from Atletico Madrid in 2015 and is some way behind the likes of Harry Kane who earns £200,000-a-week after putting pen to paper before the World Cup.
Frankly, we need to move heaven and earth to tie down Toby to a new contract, pay the man what he wants. His displays against Fulham and Manchester United have reminded everyone of exactly what a quality player he is.
Should Alderweireld be paid on par with Harry Kane? Have your say below…
