Toby Alderweireld insists he has not made a decision about his future as the Ajax defender continues to be linked with a transfer to the Premier League.

The 24-year-old has been touted as a target for Spurs, Everton and Newcastle United in the last few weeks but the Belgium international says he is yet to receive a formal offer from England.

“It depends if there is 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 reports linking him with a move to Everton or Newcastle, Alderweireld replied: “[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.”

Alderweireld’s comments come after Ajax director of football Marc Overmars confirmed that the club have received an offer for the defender.

“We have received an offer [for Alderweireld],” Overmars told De Telegraaf. “We won’t give any names as we are still in talks.

“But, just like Norwich City earlier, I expect we can work out a deal with this club.”

Alderweireld has 25 Belgium caps to his name and made 45 appearances for Ajax last season, scoring four goals.
