Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld is waiting to see who the club appoint as their new manager before deciding if he wants to leave, according to reports. Tottenham are yet to appoint a permanent successor to Jose Mourinho, who was sacked in April.
Ryan Mason has been in interim charge of Spurs and will remain in the role for the final week of the season.
British trio Scott Parker, Graham Potter and Brendan Rodgers are all among the favourites to become the next Tottenham boss.
Alderweireld has started all five of Spurs’ matches under Mason.
The Belgium international has a contract until 2023 but he is linked with a move away from the club.

Belgian outlet Voetbal 24 claims Club Brugge want to sign Alderweireld this summer.
The report says Alderweireld is open to playing ‘closer to home’ but will not make a decision until a new manager is appointed at Tottenham.
Brugge also want to sign former Tottenham star Nacer Chadli, who is currently plying his trade in Turkey with Istanbul Basaksehir.
Voetbal 24 says Brugge ‘dream’ of buying the Belgian duo but it is not clear if both deals can be completed.

Alderweireld made his 23rd Premier League start of the season in Sunday’s home match against Wolves.
Speaking last month, the 32-year-old compared Mason to former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
“You can see the similarities between Ryan and Mauricio Pochettino, how he wants to train, how his sessions are,” Alderweireld told the Guardian.
“It feels very familiar. He will bring his own view of football and his own ideas but we can see the similarities, for sure.
“Everyone knows he played at Spurs under Pochettino, he has a lot of ideas from him and we only can agree that’s very good.
“Everyone was performing very well under Pochettino and so Ryan’s mind in football is positive – it’s going forward and everyone is seeing his ideas.
“Even though it’s quite early, it’s a positive vibe he brings.
“He is a big personality, how he talks. He’s only 29 but he presents himself as very mature.
“We played with him so we know him. There’s a lot of respect and everyone agrees with how he wants to play football looking forward.
“He is the boss but you can talk to him and it’s good he sees football this way. It’s not maybe like the old days where: ‘This is the way and that’s it.’ No. It’s a very positive dynamic.”
