Toby Alderweireld has remained coy on his future at Tottenham Hotspur by insisting that he is not looking beyond the current season.

Spurs exercised their option to extend Alderweireld’s contract until 2020, but could risk losing him for £25m in the summer.

Alderweireld’s deal was due to expire at the end of the season, but after triggering this option Spurs have activated a clause in his contract which states he can leave for £25m this summer if a bid is made before the final two weeks of the transfer window.

The 30-year-old has made 30 appearances in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this season and has insisted that he is happy at the club.

Manchester United are said to be long-term admirers of the Belgian international, but a deal failed to materialise last summer (Daily Star).

Spurs are yet to agree a new long term deal with the former Southampton player which is a huge concern for the majority of supporters.

Alderweireld told Sky Sports:  “There’s a lot to play for this season. And in the end I have a year contract left at Spurs, so I don’t look further than this season.

“I still feel very fit. I think I played a lot of minutes this season so I showed that I am fit – I don’t feel 30, I feel younger.

“So as I said, I am very happy and I just try to watch game-by-game. This season there is a lot to play for so I will give my best for that.”
