Transfer: Man Utd lose out as Premier League top defender's release clause expires
Posted by badgeemmybxt

Tottenham Hotspur defender, Toby Alderweirald's £25million release clause has expired at midnight and he is now set to stay at the club, the UK Sun reports.

The 30-year-old expects to remain at Spurs for the start of the Premier League season, after Manchester United decided to pursue Leicester City centre-half Harry Maguire instead.

Alderweireld's value is likely to jump to at least £40m, with the Belgian admitting during Spurs' pre-season tour, that a transfer away from North London was unlikely.

"Yes, the release clause is running out and again anything can happen.

"Do I think I will still be a Spurs player come the start of the season? Yes - that's my focus.

"In football everything can go quickly, but all I'm doing is focusing on Spurs and being fit for the start of the season," Alderweireld said.
