Rampant Wolves raid Wembley to hurt Spurs’ title hopes

The 21-year-old had been restricted to just 12 minutes of Premier League action this season prior to the game but was given a chance to impress as Mauricio Pochettino opted to rotate his squad and rest first-choice right-back Kieran Trippier.

Tottenham Hotspur are to trigger a year-long extension in Toby Alderweireld's contract, which will reportedly contain a £25m buyout clause.

The news comes several weeks after Spurs also triggered an option on Alderweireld's Belgium team-mate and close friend Jan Vertonghen's contract.

While Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez have struggled with injuries this term, Alderweireld has been a mainstay of the side, making 24 appearances.

However, he skipped global duty in November and Spurs instantly saw an upturn in his form as Son netted the first of seven Premier League goals this season against Chelsea on November 24.

The strike is mainly focused on government hospitals, but the organisers said some doctors in private clinics were joining in. A fixture of Sudanese politics since the 1960s, Mahdi was prime minister from 1966 to 1967 and again from 1986 to 1989.

The north London outfit were the only club not to spend a single penny on new signings last summer and it seems it could be more of the same in January as well. But Pochettino said any incomings might have to be preceded by outgoings.

"We really believe in him and we're sure that he's going to be an important player in the future for Tottenham".

Pochettino said Spurs will need to sell players in January before they can think about signing anyone and added it will be hard to recruit.

"We're always open [to signing players in January] but it's going to be hard - maybe not impossible but hard", Pochettino said.

Speaking in his press conference on Thursday, Pochettino said: 'Now we need to keep pushing, keep working and believe that it's going to be tougher than before.
