Toby Alderweireld 'made Tottenham transfer exit offer by Club Brugge’ with defender’s future uncertain under Mourinho

TOTTENHAM have received an offer from Club Brugge for defender Toby Alderweireld, according to reports.

In 2019, he signed a contract extension with Spurs to keep him at the club until 2023.

But according to Voetbal 24, Alderweireld is wanted by Belgian champions Brugge.

The speculation comes as he was left out of Spurs' squad for a second successive game on Sunday.

Alderweireld has played 27 times for the Lilywhites so far this season, 18 of which have come in the Premier League.

However, he is fighting with a number of players for a first team place.

Eric Dier, Joe Rodon, Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies are among those who have played as a centre-back for Tottenham this season.

And there have also been speculation that Spurs could be in the market for another defender in the summer.

RB Leipzig captain Marcel Sabitzer and Southampton's Jannick Vestergaard have both been touted as potential options for Jose Mourinho's side.

Alderweireld recently turned 32 years old and Spurs have a reputation for selling ageing players.


Spurs suffered another blow in their fight for a Champions League place as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Newcastle on Sunday.

Tottenham would have moved into the top four with a victory, but instead sit fifth, two points below Chelsea.

If they fail to secure Champions League qualification, many believe Harry Kane could be on his way out as he looks to win trophies.
