Speaking earlier this week, Alderweireld was quick to make clear that he never forced a move out of Tottenham, which explains why United emerged from the transfer window empty handed.

Manchester United remain very interested in Toby Alderweireld.

And while on worldwide duty, Alderweireld claimed he never wanted to leave Tottenham.

The 29-year-old joined his current employers in the summer of 2015 from Southampton and has went on to make over 100 appearances for the north London club since.

Alderweireld told SkySports yesterday that he never wanted to leave Spurs, amid reports linking him to Manchester United.

'Everyone was saying everywhere that I absolutely wanted to leave Tottenham, ' Alderweireld said.

"This summer I quickly realised that Tottenham wanted to keep me", the Belgian central defender revealed in an interview with Sky Sports news.

Alderweireld only has one year left on his current contract but the club has an option to extend it for another year, with a £25million release clause. "Regarding my future, everything that was said in the press was not right all the time".

Indeed, Alderweireld seems to be in the good books of Mauricio Pochettino, having started three of the four games Tottenham have played this season.

Opinion from Spurs fans is split, with some happy at his comments and others reserving judgement until he signs a new deal.

After three straight victories in the Premier League, Spurs were beaten by Watford at Vicarage Road before the worldwide break and Pochettino will be hoping his side get back to winning ways when they welcome Liverpool to Wembley on September 15.
