Toby Alderweireld's future at Tottenham is unclear as he begins his World Cup adventure with Belgium.

Despite this, Spurs fans are not giving up on the centre-back deciding to stay put.

 

Alderweireld has been strongly linked with an exit from Tottenham as he and the club remain far apart on terms of a new deal.

Strong performances at the World Cup will put him in a strong position to earn a move and potentially hike ip his sale price.

Responding to his message, Tottenham fans are still hoping to persuade Alderweireld to stay.

Alderweireld has been at Tottenham since 2015 and he has played a major part in their defence being the meanest in the league since.

Not everybody is keen to see him sign up.

This past season his playing time was hit by injury, which prepared Tottenham for life without him if they do depart.

But with league rivals Manchester United lurking, managing to keep him would be seen as a major success, even if they have to break their strict wage structure to do it.
