Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has suggested that he will hold talks with Toby Alderweireld about the defender's future next week.
The Belgium international has just over a year left on his current contract, which includes a one-year extension option, and more than a year of talks over a new deal have not resulted in agreement.
"Of course," said Pochettino when asked by reporters if he would talk to Alderweireld following Spurs' final game of the season against Leicester City.
"We are going to be ready from the moment we finish the season to talk about the important things for the next season of course."
And when asked if he expected Alderweireld to stay in north London, Pochettino replied: "I think now we need to focus on finishing in the best way.
"Finishing third is the most important thing now. Then from Monday we will talk about all that is going to happen next season.
"That is the moment. Now is not a moment to talk about individual situations."
