Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld wants a quick resolution to his future and admits he is aware of rumoured interest from Premier League champions Chelsea.

Alderweireld made 26 starts on loan at Southampton last season and was key to the club's impressive campaign which saw them finish seventh and qualify for the Europa League under Ronald Koeman.

The 26-year-old's impressive spell in English football has seen both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur linked with a move for the Belgium international.

Southampton do have an option to sign Alderweireld but his future is seemingly in the hands of Atletico, who are seemingly ready to allow the player to leave.

Belgium face Wales in a key 2016 European Championship qualifier on 12 June and the versatile defender says he will wait until his duties are complete for the season before turning his attention to his future.

"We will see what happens," he told Sky Sports. "The season is not over, after the last game I will know more.

"I hope a decision is going to be made quickly because otherwise it goes on all summer and I want to know quick where I am playing next year.

"I don't know if [Chelsea] are interested. I read it in the press. We'll see what is coming up and I will make the right decision.

"Now I go back to Spain I think. That is the option now and we will see if clubs are coming and I will see what is a good decision for me."

Chelsea and Tottenham would reportedly have to pay £14m ($21.5m) for Alderweireld's services should they wish to sign the player, while Southampton would face a cut price deal if they make his loan move permanent.

Saints negotiated an £11m deal when they signed Alderweireld on deadline day of the last summer transfer window, while Atletico will have to pay the south coast club £3m should he decide to sign for one of their Premier League rivals.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says he will make subtle additions during the upcoming summer after his side strolled to their first league title for five years.
