Alderweireld Signs New Four-Year Contract At Tottenham

Tottenham centre-back, Toby Alderweireld has put pen to paper, signing off a contract that will remain at the London stadium till 2023.

The Belgium International has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the North London club but has committed to fresh terms with the Lilywhites.

Tottenham have improved their form under the stead of Jose Mourinho.

Having being linked with a move away from the North London club, Alderweireld has made 20 appearances across al competitions in this term with the Lilywhites in fifth position on the Premier League standing, four points adrift of the last Champions League spot.

The defender has been hugely impressive for Spurs since his move from Atletico Madrid in 2015.

Signed by former Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, he was set to leave the club on a free at the end of the current campaign.

“I’m very, very happy,” the Belgian told the club’s website. “No words can describe it.

“Another couple of years here at Spurs, I think there is no place I could be happier. I’m honoured to play for this club, and I’m a small piece of getting the club to the next level in a couple of seasons.

“To reach the Champions League season-in, season-out and to then go to the final as well… so I think this is just the beginning of something. Something big, and something very exciting.

“If you’re happy and enjoying yourself, time flies! Football and me, my family is very happy here. I’m very lucky to have a very good connection with the fans and the club from the beginning.

“People know my history, of course I played for Ajax and I have a lot of respect for the club but now I’m a Spurs player and I couldn’t see myself playing for another team.

“I think I’ve got a love for the club and I think it goes both ways. I love the club, the fans, everything; the stadium, it’s like I’m living some sort of dream. At the beginning, when I came here, they accepted me very well, it’s like being friends.

“You couldn’t do the things we’ve done in the last couple of years if you’ve not got a very good group. Now we’ve come from young players to more adult, and now it’s time to be even better.”
