Tottenham fans appear to be undecided on where they stand after Toby Alderweireld’s latest comments suggested that committing his future to the club isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.
The Belgium international is entering into the final year of his contract before a £25m release clause becomes active in north London, something which has reportedly attracted the interest of Premier League rivals Manchester United.

Despite the prospect of losing their star defender being something which most Spurs fans struggled to grasp at first, a large portion of supporters now appear willing to see the back of Alderweireld this summer.
But the 29-year-old recently spoke out admitting that he could yet stay at Tottenham next season, prompting a mixed reaction from fans in north London.
Although there is currently a split within the fanbase surrounding Alderweireld’s future at Tottenham, the majority of supporters would likely be elated to see the Belgian – who is widely regarded as the best defender in the Premier League – commit his future to the club.
However, Alderweireld’s path back into Mauricio Pochettino’s first team might not be as straightforward as he might have wished. Davinson Sánchez impressed in his maiden campaign following a big money move from Ajax, while Juan Foyth is expected to have a bigger role in the senior squad next season.
