"The club can confirm that we have activated the option to extend Toby Alderweireld's contract until 2020", Tottenham said in a statement on their website, adding, "the Belgium global defender has made 135 appearances for us to date since signing from Atletico Madrid in 2015".

The centre-back's deal was due to expire at the end of the season, but Spurs have tied down the Belgium global for a further 12 months to avoid losing him on a free transfer.

Tottenham Hotspur have extended defender Toby Alderweireld's contract until 2020, the Premier League club said on Friday.

According to a tweet from the club's official Twitter handle, the Belgium global has made 135 appearances for Tottenham since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2015.

The guidance was issued Friday in a memo from Margaret Weichert, the acting director of the Office of Personnel Management. Vice President Pence and other Trump Administration officials are getting a $10,000 raise.

At the last count, the highly-rated Belgium global Alderweireld, who stated his career with Eredivisie giants Ajax before heading to Madrid in 2013 has been capped 88 times by the European nation.

Alderweireld cost Spurs £11.5 million in July 2015 and would have likely accepted an offer in that range last summer with Manchester United and Barcelona linked.

The former Ajax centre-back has been a key player for Spurs this season, making 15 Premier League appearances for Mauricio Pochettino's side.
