Alderweireld featured on loan for Southampton from Atletico Madrid during the recently concluded 2014-15 campaign.
The 26-year-old had a very good season and was one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
The Belgium international, who can play as a centre-back as well as a right-back, scored one goal and created seven chances in 26 league appearances.
Alderweireld had a pass accuracy of 80% and a shot accuracy of 58%, and won 37 headers, seven dribbles and 35 tackles.
The former Ajax star has now said that he wants to return to the Premier League next season.
“The only thing I can say is that I’m happy in England, but it isn’t just up to me,” the Belgian told The Mirror. “I had a fantastic season at Southampton and after I have been on holiday I will talk with Atletico.
“I don’t have an answer now, but hopefully Atletico will tell me quickly what is happening. It would be good to come back to England.”
Alderweireld’s comments will come as good news to Tottenham and suggest that the North London outfit can still sign him, as he seems to be keen on playing in England next season.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side face competition from Chelsea and Manchester City, who are both claimed to have interest in Alderweireld, as per The Mirror.
