AS says with Joao Miranda now staying put, the Belgium defender will carry through with his decision to leave Atletico before the deadline falls.
Alderweireld has been linked with a move to the Premier League, where Arsenal and Tottenham are among suitors.
For their part, Atletico will not sell below market value, which is working against Alderweireld's plans.
A loan arrangement has been mentioned, but the defender is unlikely to find a move to his liking on such terms.
