Tottenham confirm agreement with Al-Duhail for Toby Alderweireld transfer – Football.London

Tottenham have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Al-Duhail for defender Toby Alderweireld.

Joining from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2015, the centre-back played a key role for Spurs in his six years at the club to become a regular in the team.

Despite looking on course to depart in 2019 for a new challenge, Alderweireld later went on to commit his future to the club after penning a new three-year contract following the arrival of Jose Mourinho in N17.

Making it clear to Spurs over the past few months that he would like to leave this summer to play elsewhere, the Belgium international will now join up with his new club in Qatar after they came to an agreement with Tottenham for his services.

“Thank you first to the fans and then to my teammates and every incredible member of the Spurs staff, backroom and beyond.

“This club will always be in mine and my family’s heart.

“Love Toby.”
