Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld says a future return to former club Ajax is "100 per cent in his head".

The Belgium international helped Spurs secure a memorable 3-2 comeback victory over Ajax on Wednesday evening to set up a Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid on June 1.

Alderweireld started his career at Ajax and went on to make nearly 200 appearances for the Dutch side, winning the Eredivisie title on three occasions.

Tottenham exercised their option to extend Alderweireld's contract until 2020 in January, but in doing so, activated a clause in his contract which states he can leave for £25m.
