Spurs told to give Toby Alderweireld an "appropriate" contract - or sell him

Tottenham star reportedly makes contractual demands to the club Tottenham and Belgium defender Toby Alderweireld issues Spurs ultimatum, says representative

The 28-year-old Belgium worldwide defender is now tied to the north Londoners until summer 2019 and if Spurs use a clause in that deal to trigger a 12-month extension, the player could depart if a club bids £25million.

Since arriving at Tottenham on a permanent deal from Atletico Madrid - following a one-year loan spell at Southampton - the 28-year-old has been pivotal to the club challenging for the Premier League title and qualifying for the Champions League in his two full seasons at the club.

Mauricio Pochettino said on August 25 that Tottenham would start contract talks with Alderweireld after the transfer window closed.

He could make a move for a new centre-back a top priority in January when the transfer window reopens, and Alderweireld figures on his wanted list.

'Toby is always good. "There are not many central defenders around who can play like he can", the agent added. "Tottenham's statistics fell sharply during his absence", said the agent to Belgian outlet Het Nieuwsblad.

"For a transfer, you know that he can only leave Tottenham for seven or eight teams and nearly all the other top clubs are interested in Toby".

"Seven or eight big European clubs are interested in signing him".

Given Spurs' reluctance to pay wages commensurate with the rest of the top six, if Alderweireld wants a proper big payday, he's going to have to leave.

"But these clubs will have to negotiate with Tottenham's chairman, Daniel Levy".

DANNY ROSE has caused controversy by talking about Tottenham's wage structure - here's every Spurs player's weekly wage as understood by Starsport.

As much as it pains us to admit it, Spurs' back-line is one of the best in Europe, and Alderweireld is a major contributing factor.
