Tottenham have accepted a £13 million offer for Toby Alderweireld from Qatari club Al-Duhail, according to The Telegraph.
There was said to be interest from the player’s former club Ajax and his hometown club Royal Antwerp.
However, it appears Alderweireld could be leaving Europe altogether.
The Telegraph claims a deal has been agreed between Tottenham and Al-Duhail that will see the Londoners receive £13 million for the transfer.
It is believed Spurs did in fact turn down an approach from Royal Antwerp earlier this summer, leaving Alderweireld with no choice but to settle for another destination.
The 32-year-old has two years left on his contract, so a modest fee of £13 million makes sense to an extent.
Some would say, however, that a player who made 35 appearances last season – and is still arguably the club’s best centre-back – shouldn’t be let go.
That said, Tottenham will probably be very active in the transfer window when it comes to the defence in the coming weeks, so Alderweireld will be replaced.
