Toby Alderweireld insists his prolonged spell out of Tottenham's first-team last season was "unjustified" and admits he still unsure about his future.

The Belgium global started six of his country's games at the World Cup after playing just 14 times for Spurs in the Premier League last season, and he said he was glad to have proved his form and fitness in Russian Federation.

The 29-year-old is a target for Manchester United this summer but the two clubs are at an impasse over the fee.

"I was very focused on (the World Cup)". 'I wanted to prove something again.

Despite his lack of club football, Alderweireld enjoyed an impressive World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, starting and completing all of Belgium's matches bar their dead rubber group contest against England where a host of first-teamers were rested.

'I wanted to show that I am still the same Toby as in November'. I immediately had a good feeling. I spent only three or four months [injured] in my entire career.

The centre-back was quoted as saying by Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws: "I still have to talk with my agent, but at the moment I am assuming that I will start training with Spurs after my holidays".

This latest update will be welcome news for Spurs fans, who will be even more pleased with a recent interview that Alderweireld gave football.london, during which he declared that his current club are "going the right way".

"I really do not know anything yet. We will see", he said.

Tottenham Hotspur are edging closer to signing Brazilian starlet Malcom from Bordeaux with the 21-year-old keen to make the switch from Ligue 1 to the Premier League, according to The Sun.
