Toby Alderweireld has suggested he would be open to staying with Tottenham beyond the summer transfer window despite speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
Alderweireld has been widely tipped to leave Spurs this summer after failing to agree terms on a new contract.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for the Belgian, who has two years left on his current deal.
A serious hamstring injury saw Alderweireld miss long spells of the 2017/18 season, and the 29-year-old struggled to reclaim his place in the side after returning because of the form of Davinson Sanchez.
Ahead of Belgium’s World Cup campaign, Alderweireld was asked if he could stay at Tottenham.
“Yeah, why not? I have two years left on my contract. I don’t know what is going to happen,” he said, according to Sky Sports.
Spurs have been linked with Ajax teenager Matthijs de Ligt as a potential replacement for Alderweireld, although reports suggest a deal probably won’t happen.
Jamaal Lascelles has been mentioned as an alternative – Chelsea are also said to be interested in the Newcastle captain.
