Cape Town - Toby
Alderweireld insists he is settled at Tottenham, despite having yet to
agree terms on a new contract with the Premier League title contenders.
The Belgium international was thought to be unhappy about the matter,
with his lawyer recently urging Spurs to show their commitment to a
thoroughly deserving servant of the club.
But Mauricio Pochettino responded to rumours about his player's
future by revealing that all was well, the manager having held a
positive meeting with Alderweireld, who has admitted as much to Sky Sports News.
"I had a good conversation with the manager," the 28-year-old
defender said. "I told him I'm focused on football, to keep my game up
and help the team.
"That's all I can do. You can see I'm happy there, and I try to help the team, and that's the way I always play football."
Asked if he'd been offered a new deal yet, Alderweireld replied: "No,
like I said, I am focused on football. The rest, I don't know, we will
see about that."
