“I like Alderweireld, and I'd put him in the top three centre-backs in the Premier League,” Woodgate told Spurs’ official website.
Alderweireld is one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League and is a key player in the current Tottenham team.
The 27-year-old has been on the books of Spurs since the summer of 2015 when he joined them from Spanish club Atletico Madrid for a transfer fee reported by The Daily Mail to be worth £11.5 million following a loan spell at Southampton during the 2014-15 campaign.
The Belgium international centre-back has been playing well for Tottenham this season, and not many will disagree with Woodgate’s comments about Alderweireld.
In fact, Alderweireld could even be the best centre-back playing in the Premier League at the moment.
Spurs are still in the running for the Premier League title this season, but realistically they should aim for a top-four finish.
The North London outfit will return to action on Sunday afternoon when they take on Watford away from home at Vicarage Road in the Premier League.
