Dustin Menno for Cartilage Free Captain:
The particulars of the deal, which were not confirmed by either club, are said to be for £10m plus an additional £1.5m in add-ons, with the Belgian center back accepting wages over £50k per week. Alderweireld joins a (currently) crowded stable of center back options for Spurs, but has the quality to straight away be in contention to play alongside Jan Vertonghen as Spurs’ first choice center half. Alderweireld was keen to join Spurs in order to play alongside his fellow Belgium national teammates Vertonghen, Nacer Chadli, and Mousa Dembele, and he credited the Belgian trio with his initial interest in signing for Spurs.
Great signing. Will be a boost to the Spurs defence.
