Pochettino unconcerned by Alderweireld rumours

Last Updated: Thu, 20 Apr 2017 13:25

Mauricio Pochettino has brushed off concerns over the future of Toby Alderweireld following rumours he is looking to leave Spurs.

The Belgium international is believed to have turned down the offer of a new contract at White Hart Lane and his decision not to commit to the north Londoners has sparked the interest of Italian giants Inter Milan.

The 28-year-old's existing contract runs until 2019 and Tottenham have the option to extend it by a further 12 months so would appear under no pressure to sell.

It has been reported that there is a £25million release clause in Alderweireld's current terms but that will only become active if Spurs decide to take up the option to extend his contract.

Pochettino is therefore not worried about losing one of his best defenders, insisting he will be going nowhere this summer.

"All the players have contracts for the next two, three years," said Pochettino. "We are not worried. I invite all the clubs that want a player form Tottenham to come to the training ground and speak to Daniel Levy.

"Toby is in his second season at the club, no one has doubt about Toby."
