Ajax boss Ronald de Boer says that it would take a "super transfer fee" to tempt them into selling Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld.

Ajax manager Ronald de Boer has dashed Tottenham Hotspur's hopes of landing Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld in January.

The 23-year-old is a reported target of the north London outfit, but De Boer has said that it would take a "super transfer fee" to prise him away from the Amsterdam ArenA.

Answering to the rumours linking Alderweireld with a move to White Hart Lane, Sky Sports News quotes De Boer as saying: "That's maybe something for next year. I think he'll end this season at Ajax.

"We're very happy with him and don't want to let him go in the winter unless it's a super transfer fee, but I don't think that will happen."

Alderweireld has won 19 caps for his country.
