Toby Alderweireld is “very happy” at Tottenham Hotspur but remains uncertain about his future at the club.
The Belgian is out of contract at the end of next season but Spurs might be forced into selling him this summer.
As part of the one-year extension Alderweireld agreed earlier this year, a £25 million release clause was activated and can be triggered in the final two weeks of the upcoming transfer window.
As a result, Alderweireld has been heavily linked with an exit. Manchester United are said to be chief among his suitors.
Speaking to Sky Sports News ahead of two crucial games for Belgium, Alderweireld delivered an update on his future.
“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,” he said.
“Other things I don’t know. I am very happy at Spurs, so we will see what the future brings.
It remains unclear whether there is any chance Alderweireld will agree terms on a new long-term contract, but it looks unlikely at the moment.
Usually if that is set to happen, trusted journalists would be reporting it months in advance of the the transfer window.
With that in mind, Alderweireld appears to edging closer to a departure. Spurs fans will be hoping the club can sell him abroad to avoid strengthening a rival.
