Alderweireld delivers eight-word transfer message to Tottenham from Belgium camp

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld has sent out a message to the club’s hierarchy over their transfer plans this summer before the beginning of another campaign.

The Belgium star has still not guaranteed any commitment to the club, amid rumours of a possible exit, with Manchester United supposedly interested in signing him.

Alderweired played an important role in the team’s run in the Champions League last year, as they managed to reach the final of the competition, where they were beaten by Liverpool.

With the club now playing in a new beautiful stadium, having made a new step in its European history, there are signs of encouragement to convince Alderweireld to stay in north London.

While on duty with the Belgium national team, the defender sent out an ambitious eight-word message that “I hope the club is working on reinforcements”, for Spurs to actually invest in the transfer market this summer, instead of retaining faith in what is frankly a thin squad.

Talking to Belgian outlet Nieuwsblad, Alderweireld said: “After the disappointment of that 2-0 defeat, I didn’t feel like football anymore and I wanted to be with my family.

“I played 65 games this season. Mentally it was tough. I am happy that the game against Scotland in Brussels on Tuesday is the last game of the season. After that we can finally go on vacation.

“I’m focusing on a new season at Spurs. I hope the club is working on reinforcements.”
