In doing so, however, the club will activate a clause that states the Belgian global can leave for £25m this summer instead of on a Bosman free transfer, should he not sign a new long-term deal beforehand. "It is the same situation as Jan [Vertonghen]", he said.
But Pochettino said it is still premature to talk of Tottenham as title contenders.
But, unlike Vertonghen, Alderweireld's extension includes a clause that allows him to leave for just £25m next summer until two weeks before the window closes.

A further clause states Tottenham would have to receive that £25million offer from another club 14 or more days before the end of the summer 2019 transfer window.
A few names have come forward for the lucrative role but the name of Mauricio Pochettino seems to be shining the brightest.
"All the teams in the Premier League we have to fear".
