Spurs confirm defender has signed contract

Toby Alderweireld

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that they have extended Toby Alderweireld’s contract until 2020.

As widely reported, the Belgian’s 12-month extension includes a clause that allows him to leave the club for £25million during the summer until two weeks before the transfer window closes.

The 29-year-old has been in impressive form this season and has been the club’s only fit central defender for the majority of the campaign due to the injuries suffered by Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld.

If Spurs had not extended his contract, it would have meant that they would have lost the former Ajax defender on a free transfer next summer and it also prevents him from talking to foreign clubs from the beginning of this month about a possible summer switch.

There now has to be an urgency at the club to try and finally agree terms over a new long-term deal, which has so far proven to be an issue.

Spurs confirmed the news on their official Twitter page.

  1. We need to go out and get Pavard in to fix the squad, put a decent champions league run together and quell some of the negativity around the club that’s been going on the whole first half of the season. It was heart breaking watching Chelsea sign pulisic (who was once at Spurs) knowing we are about to lose Eriksen due to no decent contract being offered a long time ago.
