Toby Alderweireld looks set to commit his future to Tottenham Hotspur by signing a new contract at the club.
Football Insider report that the Belgian is now keen to put pen to paper on a contract extension with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season.
There was a risk that the 30-year-old could have left North London for a cut price £25million transfer fee, but no club came forward to trigger the release clause (FourFourTwo).
The central defender was heavily linked with a move to Italian side Roma earlier in the summer but a move failed to materialise (Sky Sports).
Alderweireld is one of three current first-team players who are at risk of walking away from the club for free next summer with Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen also in a similar situation.
According to the report, Alderweireld’s contract talks with the club broke down at the start of last year but now looks set to remain in N17 with a deal which will double his wages.
Mauricio Pochettino has started Alderweireld in all three Premier League matches this season alongside Davinson Sanchez, while Vertonghen has yet to play a minute of competitive football.
