Southampton are expecting to complete a deal for Toby Alderweireld after Atletico Madrid failed to cancel the buy-out clause in time.

The 26-year-old spent a highly-successful season on loan at St Mary's last term after finding playing time limited at the Vicente Calderon Stadium. Alderweireld's performances have led to interest from the likes of Tottenham.

However, Southampton remain confident of signing the Belgium international for a cut-price £6.8million.
