This follows confirmation from manager Mauricio Pochettino that the player will not be fit for Tottenham’s Champions League clash against Juventus on March 7.
Asked whether Alderweireld would be fit Pochettino replied, as quoted in the Guardian, that he wasn’t training with the first team and that the “answer is clear”.
Alderweireld has only made 17 appearances for Tottenham this season and hasn’t played in the Premier League since October.
He made his comeback in two FA Cup games against Newport and Rochdale but aggravated his hamstring and has since been back in rehab.
