    Ooooh, another Dutch CB might have something to say about that. I was always a Jan man myself…

    I know its the right time, but sad to see him go. Absolutely loved watching our two belgians over the years

    A Rolls Royce of a defender and part of the best team that we have had here since at least Pleat's 87 team.

    He gave us the best years of his career and generally always gave a high level of performance.

    Thanks for the memories Toby. I look forward to the great reception you will always get when coming back to Spurs in any capacity.

    Really liked watching Toby - classy player, read the game well and used the ball well

    Sad to see him leave but that life. He was unlikely to stay til his career ended and we've got a very good fee for him

    Hopefully this also signals that the Romero deal is imminent too

    Same here Jan is up there with King in my ratings, but Toby was part of the partnership with Jan and they are probably the best pairing we have seen.

    Really starting to feel like the end of an era now.

    Very efficient, few mistakes (think he gave away a pen on debut!!) and technically decent on the ball with a memorable diagonal ping.

    For me Jan will be remembered as the superior player though, especially as this is now semi retirement for Toby.

    Seems something in the £10-£13M range.

    Farewell Toby. You were part of the best defensive pair I had seen for Spurs since Ledley King plus Woodgate. I thank you for your time and wish you well in Qatar. Have fun!!

    Class is the last word I'd use to describe him right now.

    With you on this one. There's some favourites (well of mine anyway) heading out the door.

    Going to be a slightly unfamiliar lookabout the place as the season starts.
