Toby Alderweireld has claimed he is still waiting for Tottenham to offer him a new contract, also suggesting as far as he knows he will be a Spurs player next season.
The Belgian has been linked with a move away from Tottenham as talks over a new deal continue to drag. Inter Milan are believed to be interested in taking him to Italy.
But Alderweireld has now told reporters in Belgium he is yet to be offered a contract by the club.
“I’m still waiting for a contract proposal,” he said in quotes relayed by The Independent. “But in my mind I’m playing for Spurs next season.
“There is no talk now, so it’s all rumours, because if there’s no talk there’s no rejection as well. We will see in the future how it will go.”
The 28-year-old has been one of Tottenham’s stand-out players over the last two seasons. As a result, many supporters believe he deserves to become one of the club’s top earners on par with Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, who earn in excess of £100,000-a-week.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens with his contract, but at least it seems Alderweireld will still be at Spurs next season.
