Pochettino Not Ruling Out Alderweireld Deal

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has not ruled out Toby Alderweireld agreeing a new contract at the club. The Belgian defender’s future with Spurs looked done and dusted after he was frozen out at the end of last season after reportedly failing to agree a new contract.

However, Alderweireld remained at the club over the summer, despite reported interest from Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, and he has reintegrated into Pochettino’s squad, starting the last three games.

The centre-back came out this week while on international duty with Belgium and said he never wanted to leave the club.

Speaking about Alderweireld’s situation, Pochettino said: “Look, when in England the transfer window closed and in Europe closed I think we move on.

“Then like always I told you, I never talk about situations, that maybe yes or maybe no, the club is dealing or working.

“In that situation it’s not my job to talk about individual situations.
“I think it’s so clear, not only in his case, in all the players that have different situations, we are so clear, the club is so clear, when something happens we are going to communicate the news as soon as possible.

“I am not going to talk about individual things. It’s not going to help anyone.”
