The Belgium international has been linked with a move to Everton, while Tottenham and Newcastle have also been credited with an interest in the Ajax man.

The 24-year-old is entering the final year of his contract at Ajax and he admits he has not made a decision on his future as yet as he waits on offers from his suitors.

"It depends if there is a club coming [in] that I want to go to," Alderweireld told Sky Sports News. "But I'm patient and we will see in a few days.

"We will see, if they [Tottenham] are very interested then I will hear what their plans are."

Asked about the links with possible moves to Everton or Newcastle, Alderweireld added: "[There is no offer from Everton] that I know of, maybe my manager knows. But I was focusing on the [Belgium] game and now I'm focusing on Sunday.

"I didn't hear from those clubs. But those are beautiful clubs and the Premier League is a beautiful competition, so we will see."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
