Toby Alderweireld insists he has not been distracted by speculation about his Tottenham contract.
"I signed for Tottenham for a reason and I love to play here," Alderweireld said.
"I see no problem there. Whatever has been written, I am only focusing on football because that is what I love to do."
Alderweireld made his first start in eight weeks on Sunday as Tottenham lost 1-0 to Manchester United and his return has come as a major boost ahead of the busy Christmas period.
"It was an unusual injury, one in a million. It almost never happens in football," Alderweireld said.
"I got a hard knock on the nerve on the right side of my knee, so the nerve was shut down. All of my leg was shut down."
Alderweireld added: "I knew that when the nerve started working normally again, I had to be able to play as quickly as possible, and that was my motivation.
"I worked hard for it. Sometimes these things can happen but now I think I am 100 per cent."
