Toby Alderweireld is fully committed to Tottenham, insists Mauricio Pochettino, despite suggestions he may leave the club.
If Spurs trigger a year-long extension in 2019, Alderweireld can leave for a fee of £25m, and the club want to eradicate this clause from any new deal.
Tottenham manager Pochettino insists Alderweireld remains focused on Spurs, though, following talks between the pair on Thursday.
"It is true, there is a lot of rumours in the last few days," he said. "He was talking with me in my office this morning.
"He is happy, he wants to make fully clear his position that he is fully committed to the club. He is happy with his contract - two years plus one - but it is not easy.
"I recognise that in the last few days there have been some rumours but he is so happy and so calm. His idea is to try and play here and he has no reason to move."
