Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld says he's "happy" at the club but says he's not thinking about signing a new deal.

Belgium global Alderweireld is out of contract at the end of the season and reportedly held talks with Premier League rivals Manchester United during the last transfer window.

The club said in a statement that he had made a "good initial response to rehabilitation".
