Defender Toby Alderweireld suggests that he intends to remain at Tottenham Hotspur for the upcoming campaign.

Toby Alderweireld has said that he is 'focused' on starting the new season with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Belgium international currently has a £25m release clause in his contract, something which has naturally led to interest in the defender's signature.

Roma have been linked with an approach for the 30-year-old, although it appears that the Italian giants may struggle to tempt the player away from North London.

Alderweireld is quoted by talkSPORT as saying: "I think the manager knows I am committed to the club and the team but you never know in football. A game like Sunday I was captain – so that shows the manager has trust in me and I'm showing the right attitude.

"My focus is on Spurs and I try to deliver the job I need to do – I'm happy and that's it. In my head I will be playing for Spurs."

The clause in Alderweireld's contract - which only lasts until the end of next season - expires on July 26.
