Ajax defender Toby Alderweireld insists he has no plans to leave the Dutch champions, even if he is offered a move to the Premier League.

Toby Alderweireld: Defender is planning to stay at Ajax

Alderweireld's team-mate Jan Vertonghen is keen to join Tottenham Hotspur and is waiting for a fee to be agreed between the two clubs.

Newcastle United have been linked with a move for Alderweireld, but the 23-year-old is not planning to follow his fellow centre-half to England.

"I will stay at Ajax, no matter what," Alderweireld told AD5. "Don't listen to all the rumours you hear."

The Belgium international, who can also play at right-back, has a further two years left on his contract and Ajax confirmed in March that talks were due to open regarding an extension.

At the time, Alderweireld also said it would be 'foolish' to leave Ajax now and he wanted to follow the example of Thomas Vermaelen, who spent several seasons at the Amsterdam ArenA before moving to Arsenal.
