Alderweireld - I am happy at Spurs

11th October 2018, 10:53 by Tom Hill

Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld admits he is happy at the club but has refused to update fans on his contract situation.

The Belgium international was linked with a summer exit earlier this year, with Manchester United heavily interested.

United failed to agree terms with the north London outfit and eventually moved on to other targets, but Alderweireld has yet to commit his future to Spurs.

His contract expires at the end of the current campaign and while he insists he is happy after the birth of his new daughter, the 29-year-old has no update on his next move.

He told Sky Sports News: "Not that I can say, no. I'm focused on Spurs and trying to help the team. That's all I can do.

"I'm the old Toby again. I try to do my best and help the team. How happy am I on a scale of one to 10? When you have a daughter it's 10 out of 10. It doesn't matter what happens. The joy that I get from that, I try to give it to my football."
