Belgium international Toby Alderweireld has revealed he turned down an approach from Liverpool.

The 23-year-old joined Spanish giants Ateltcio Madrid from Ajax on transfer deadline day.

He told the Spanish press following his arrival at Atletico: "The club have been following me now for two or three weeks, and you could see they really wanted me.

"That is why I turned down approaches from other teams. Liverpool, for example, appeared in the last few days, but I had already taken my decision.

"The truth is that Atletico made a huge effort to convince me."
