Dad reveals Alderweireld playing plans beyond Spurs

The father of Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld says he plans to end his career in Belgium.

Alderweireld penned new terms with Spurs over the summer.

Dad Vic said: "Toby is going to return to Belgium, he is already building a house in Ekeren.

"The house will be ready by 2023, the year when his contract with Tottenham ends. Let's see where Toby will play - in Tottenham, Ajax, Antwerp or somewhere else. However, the chance that in 2023, when he turns 34, he will perform closer to home, is quite high."
