Reports have emerged this morning that Spurs have almost completed the signing of Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid.
The Belgian defender had a successful season last season on loan at Southampton, who seem to have failed to land Alderweireld despite having a clause in his loan contract enabling them to purchase the player for a bargain fee. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news.

Finally, Toby Alderweireld move to Spurs seems to be complete. Now if Levy can move on to signing some attacking threats.

A back five including Lloris, Vertonghen and Alderweireld will really test my homosexuality.

Remember when Southampton fans were so arrogant that they would sign Toby Alderweireld for no apparent reason?

With all due respect, moving to Spurs 'from' Southampton is a step up. Not sure how their fans can say they're on our level at all, sorry.

IF Alderweireld actually happens just remember he's no Cannavaro, some seem to be really really building him up.

If it happens, I hope signing Alderweireld doesn't stunt Dier's development. He's a long way off, but potential to be a superstar.

Looking forward to that moment we sign Alderweireld only for Jan Vertonghen to leave. It's the tottenham way
