Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Toby Alderweireld has signed a new contract at the club.

The Belgian has put pen to paper on fresh terms which will keep him in North London until 2023.

Alderweireld’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the season and would have been able to have entered negotiations with clubs on the continent when the transfer window opened next month before walking away as a free agent in the summer.

In December of last year Spurs triggered an extension clause in his deal which saw him contracted until the summer of 2020.

By taking up the year’s option, it also activated a £25m release clause which from the start of the 2019 summer transfer window but thankfully no club triggered the clause.

The central defender joined Tottenham from Atletico Madrid in 2015 and has made 179 appearances in all competitions.

Alderweireld’s deal now leaves Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen as the two senior players who will be out of contract at the end of the campaign.
