Belgian defender interested in move to England.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld admits he would be interested in a move to the Premier League this summer, though no decision has yet been made on his future.

According to the Sport Review, the Belgian told Sky Sports News that he is aware of interest from Tottenham, though he would also be willing to talk to Everton and Newcastle.

The 24-year-old is regarded as one of the best young defenders in the game, and his future has been the subject of much speculation this summer, as well as his Ajax team-mate Christian Eriksen.

Despite saying he is only focusing on the present, he admits that the lure of English football could persuade him to make a move before the end of the transfer window.

“We will see, if they [Tottenham] are very interested then I will hear what their plans are,” he said.

“[There is no offer from Everton] that I know of, maybe my manager knows. But I was focusing on the [Belgium] game and now I’m focusing on Sunday.

“I didn’t hear from those clubs. But those are beautiful clubs and the Premier League is a beautiful competition, so we will see.”

Alderweireld has been a regular for Ajax since 2009, and his ability to play both centre-back and right-back will appeal to the clubs chasing him. If he moves to White Hart Lane, he could pair up with fellow Belgian and former Ajax team-mate Jan Vertonghen, who had an excellent first season in the Premier League.
