Mauricio Pochettino confirmed yesterday that Tottenham Hotspur will be taking up the option to extend Toby Alderweireld’s contract until 2020.

The decision means that by extending his contract, the central defender will be available for just £25million next summer until 14 days before the transfer deadline.

Tottenham fans have been reacting to the news on social media with some concerned that the news means that he will be sold next summer.

Despite being constantly linked with a move to Manchester United last summer, it came as a surprise to some to see him remain at Spurs for the current season.

Alderweireld has been Tottenham’s main central defender this season following injuries to Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez.

According to talkSPORT, the 29-year-old has already refused to sign a new contract worth £130,000-a-week last season.

The fact that he is now available for just £25million next summer will mean that he will not be short of admirers from potential suitors.

Here’s how some Spurs fans have been reacting.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Need to extend Tobys contract. He is a rock and in Vertonghen and Davison, we have quality centre backs. Not a great admirer of Foyth and there’s no other centre backs out there I’d like at the Lane so we have to keep Toby.
