Qatar Stars League club Al-Duhail SC have roped in the services of Belgian player Toby Alderweireld from the English Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur.
Toby Alderweireld started his senior career with Ajax and represented the club between 2007 – 2013. He scored seven goals in 128 matches for the Dutch outfit before making a switch to Atletico Madrid FC. He found the net once in 12 matches during one season.
He stayed with the club for a couple of seasons but was loaned out to Southampton FC during Premier League 2014/15. He played 26 games for the English side during his loan stint with them. In 2015, Toby signed a contract with Tottenham Hotspur. The Belgian defender played a whopping number of 174 matches for the North-London-based club.
In 174 appearances, he found the net eight times for the Spurs and was their key defender over the last few years. The Qatari club have bolstered their defence unit by signing the 32-year-old Toby Alderweireld. The oppositions will struggle to get the ball past him.
