  • Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld gestures

Tottenham have exercised their option to extend Toby Alderweireld's contract until 2020, but could risk losing him for £25m in the summer.

The Belgium international's deal was set to expire at the end of the current season, after which the 29-year-old centre back would have been able to leave the club for free in the close season.

According to a tweet from the club's official Twitter handle, the Belgium global has made 135 appearances for Tottenham since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2015. "His first introduction to the Premier League came during a season-long loan at Southampton in 2014-15 prior to joining us".

By taking up the option for an additional year, a £25million release clause which runs from the start of the 2019 summer transfer window has been activated.

Alderweireld, who arrived at Spurs in July 2015 from Atletico Madrid, has been a key player for the north London outfit this season, making 24 appearances in all competitions.
