Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld has signed a new contract, keeping him at the north London club until 2023.
With Spurs showing improvements in recent weeks under Jose Mourinho, the 30-year-old Belgium international has committed his future to the club.
Having previously been linked with a move away, Alderweireld has made 20 appearances in all competitions this season, with Spurs currently sitting fifth in the Premier League – and just three points off the top four.
“We are delighted to announce that Toby Alderweireld has signed a new contract with the Club until 2023,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.
“The central defender from Wilrijk, Belgium, joined us from Atletico Madrid in July, 2015, and has made 179 appearances for us in all competitions.

” A mainstay of our back line, Alderweireld played in 50 of our 58 matches last season, starting 12 of 13 in our run to the Champions League Final. So far this term, he’s started 16 of our 17 games in the Premier League.
” On the international stage, Alderweireld is fast approaching a century of caps having represented Belgium on 98 occasions so far and continues to excel for his country, playing regularly alongside Spurs team-mate Jan Vertonghen. He has featured in two World Cups (2014, 2018) and Euro 2016, while he was part of a Belgium side that has conceded just three goals in 10 qualifiers on the way to next summer’s Euro 2020 finals.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
