Tottenham Hotspur centre-half Toby Alderweireld’s future has been subject to a lot of speculation over the course of the summer. While a lot of clubs were said to be tracking the Belgian international (Calciomercato), there was no club that was willing to activate his £25 million release clause, which expired as of Friday (Evening Standard).

The Daily Mail reports that the club has made multiple contract offers to the defender, thought to be in the region of around £150,000-a-week, but it is claimed that the Spurs player has rejected every offer thus far.

The report goes onto claim that Alderweireld is aware that he can earn a lot more if he moves as a free agent next summer.

While some Spurs fans moaned that it was a no-win situation for the club, others insisted that the defender deserved to get his wish of leaving on a free transfer for massive wages after his many years of loyal service to the Lilywhites.


Spurs Web Opinion

Daniel Levy certainly won’t like the prospect of allowing Alderweireld to leave on a free. So if he doesn’t put pen to paper on a new deal, we at Spurs Web think it is still likely that he will leave this summer or at least next January. However, we believe that the club should hang on to him for the entirety of next season and allow him to leave on a free next summer.
