Toby Alderweireld claims that he’s ‘waiting for that one phone call’

Tottenham became the first ever Premier League club not to make a single summer signing this year after the transfer window slammed shut for English top tier clubs.

However, the window still remains open for the rest of Europe until August 31, meaning that there could still be some outgoings away from North London.

One man who has been linked with a move away has been Belgian defensive star, Toby Alderweireld.

Heavily tipped for a Manchester United move, Alderweireld has most recently been linked to German champions Bayern Munich, but it now seems that the world class centre-back will stay for at least another season at Spurs.

He is, however, expecting one phone call very soon, but not with any transfer links. Toby Alderweireld and his partner are expecting their first child, a baby girl.

It is unclear whether this will impact Toby’s availability in the coming weeks, but we can all join together to offer our best wishes and hearty congratulations to the young couple.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Once the European window closes, hopefully Alderweireld will sign a 3 year contract with Tottenham and all the speculation will die down. No blame for Toby trying to maximize the salary for what is probably his final contract; but it would appear that the Spurs offer is pretty fair and very good. Man U. promised more but then tried to finance it by making a super lowball offer. I don’t expect Toby to play out a year at lower wages in order to retain a buy-out clause which would only benefit the low-lifes who have already let him down.
