Premier League News: Alderweireld ready for Al-Duhail’s move


Second the telegraph, Toby Alderweireld is set to leave Tottenham Hotspur to join Qatar side Al-Duhail after the two clubs reached a transfer agreement.

The move is still subject to personal agreement and medical examinations, but the 32-year-old defender is ready to fly to the Middle East to complete the latest necessities that should mark the end of his six-year stay in North London. If all goes as planned, the Spurs will collect £ 13 million from the sale of the player whose contract would otherwise expire two years.

The Belgian national expert joined Spurs in 2015 from Atletico Madrid for a claimed amount of € 16 million. Having started in Beerschot’s youth lineup, he quickly joined the famed Ajax academy, climbing the ranks to earn promotion to the first team in 2009. For years later, he moved to Atletico and spent his first season on books of current La Liga champions on loan to Southampton. He has a La Liga title, four Eredivisie titles and two Dutch Cup winner medals. He failed to win big honors with Spurs, getting closer in 2019 when Mauricio Pochettino’s team reached the Champions League final.
