Toby Alderweireld 'unsure' of long-term future

Toby Alderweireld, who is currently on loan at Southampton from Atletico Madrid, is 'unsure' of his long-term future.

Toby Alderweireld has admitted that he is 'unsure' of his long-term future in the game.

The Belgian centre-back joined Atletico Madrid from Ajax last summer, but struggled for first-team football in Spain and has since moved on loan to Southampton.

"There is provision that Atletico can take [me] back if [they] want to," he told reporters.

"For me, next year the construction is complicated. I understand. We will sit down together after this season with all the parties and see what is the best solution.

"I will get the chance to show [my talents at Southampton] but, if I have two weeks in a row when I do not perform well, I will move to the bench."

Alderweireld, 25, could make his Saints debut against Newcastle United on Sunday.
