Cameron Carter-Vickers and Toby Alderweireld release clause


HITC have come up with another of their articles that show they don't know much about Spurs. This time the article was about our young 19-year-old (20 in December) USA Under-20 and Under-23 international (he has 2 and 4 caps respectively) centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers.

''There is every chance that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will try to loan him out this summer" they tell us.

Well that is completely UNTRUE. The opposite is the truth, who says so, Mauricio Pochettino himself. The cream of our young players stay under his guidance at Tottenham to learn his and our way.

Looking from the outside the situation surrounding 28-year-old (29 next March) Toby Alderweireld I would think is not over his wages but over having a release clause in his contract. Currently he has once that can be activated in 2019 and we want him to sign a new contract that takes out that release clause, especially at it's current level of £25 million (€28.86m - AUS$42.89m - US$32.37m).

On the continent it is normal to have a high release clause which rises with each new negotiation in return for a pay rise. This may be the sticking point with his agent. If Virgil van Dijk is worth £60 million (€69.27m - AUS$102.94m - US$77.69m), the figure Liverpool were prepared to pay, then Alderweireld as arguably the best centre-back in the Premier League, must be £80 million (€92.37m - AUS$137.26 - US$103.59m), which is ludicrous. 

We don't want a release clause so we can charge what we want. I doubt wages are the real issue at all.
