"It's obvious. The same situation as Jan (Vertonghen)".

Earlier this month, Spurs extended centre back Vertonghen's contract until 2020.

Alderweireld was expected to leave last summer as Spurs looked to cash in on him after he reportedly rejected a long-term deal.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has made it clear that he wants no repeat of the "disrespect" his team was shown by Chelsea and their players when Spurs last attempted to win the Premier League.

Harry Kane joked that Christmas dinner could become a regular feature on the menu at Tottenham's training ground after a 5-0 Boxing Day demolition of Bournemouth.

Pochettino said. "Sometimes for us it's so tough to discover the real state and level of the players".

"But that is a very good signal, that all the players want to be involved. That increases the level, the competitive level in the squad and for sure helps to get good results".

However, there is a catch, the club, according to the terms of the option, are obliged to accept any offer of £25 million or above should it arrive before the last two weeks of the summer window. But Pochettino said any incomings might have to be preceded by outgoings. We translate a lot of emotion to the people.

"Maybe every day we talk (with chairman Daniel Levy and chief scout Steve Hitchen) but it depends on if players are going to leave and to have space to sign players".

"We really believe in him and we're sure that he's going to be an important player in the future for Tottenham".
