No, Wasn't Disappointed Not To Leave Tottenham Hotspur, Spurs Star Insists

However, the 29-year-old claims he always wanted to stay put in north London.

He was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United all summer, but it emerged that the Red Devils did not make a serious play to land him during the transfer window.

The Belgian centre back was linked with Manchester United during the summer, but insisted over the worldwide break that he was never close to leaving Spurs.

"Everyone was saying everywhere that I absolutely wanted to leave Tottenham, " Alderweireld stated this at a news conference ahead of Belgium's UEFA Nations League clash against Iceland on Tuesday.

Contract talks between Spurs and Alderweireld stalled and the defender has just a year left on his current deal but it does include an option for a one-year extension, although this will include a £25million release clause. To be in the first team again is a victory for me. "Everything on my future that has been said by the press is not correct".

The former Southampton and Atletico Madrid man started the season on the bench as Spurs secured an opening-day win over Newcastle, but has since forced his way back into the first-team side, starting the last three games.

"The World Cup was good and I meant to work hard and show my qualities".

Nicol says the comments by Alderweireld are good news for Spurs supporters.
