Various sources report Atleti have confirmed Tottenham's interest in the 26-year-old, with a deal expected in coming days.

Alderweireld has been the subject of a raft of transfer speculation this summer after spending last season on loan at Southampton - a club he could still sign for.

Alderweireld has been the subject of a raft of transfer speculation this summer after spending last season on loan at Southampton - a club he could still sign for.

This appears less likely, though, after Atleti are thought to have cancelled a clause that would have allowed Saints to buy the player for around £6m, meaning he will now be sold to the highest bidder.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is now believed to have flown to Madrid to personally tie up a deal that would see the Belgian star playing alongside his national teammate Jan Vertonghen at White Hart Lane next season.
