Mauricio Pochettino has given another update on Toby Alderweireld’s future at Tottenham.
The Belgian defender’s contract at the club has been the subject of plenty of newspapers headlines for a number of months due to his reported £50,000-a-week wage, along with the fact that he has just two years to run on his current deal, with the option of another year’s extension.
While the likes of Hugo Lloris, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Harry Kane, Eric Dier and even Danny Rose have been rewarded with more lucrative deals, Alderweireld has not put pen to paper.
The question once again reared its head at the weekly press conference and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino told the media: “He was talking to me in my office today and he’s so happy. He wants to make it clear he is fully committed to the club.
“He’s happy with his contract – two years plus one. It’s not an issue, but he is so relaxed and calm.”
