Tottenham open contract extension talks with Jan Vertonghen

Tottenham have opened discussions with Jan Vertonghen over a contract extension, according to the Daily Mail.

The 32-year-old is a free agent at the end of the season and had earlier hinted of being happy at the club.

Vertonghen didn’t feature in some of our games at the start of the season, but the Belgian has made his way back into the starting XI.

The 32-year-old is one of the best in the Premier League, but Spurs are hesitant of handing him more than 12 months in the new deal (h/t Daily Mail).

They are concerned about his age, however, the 30-year-old Moussa Sissoko recently signed a four-year deal too and that could be used as a bargaining chip by Vertonghen (h/t Daily Mail).

Vertonghen believes he can play for many years

The Belgian might be 32 but he was certain about starring at the top level for several years. Vertonghen spoke on Monday claiming that he wants to help the team for as long as possible (h/t Daily Mail):

“I’m very aware of my age. But I feel fairly young. I want to play as many games as I can at highest possible level. I’m very ambitious.

“I feel like I still have a couple of good years left in me. That’s definitely how I’m feeling now. I hope I can help the team for as long as I can.”

It will be interesting to see what happens with Jan in the coming weeks. The Belgian has put up some great performances for Spurs, but he has had injury problems too.

Finding someone with this amount of experience won’t be easy and letting him leave on a free transfer wouldn’t be a great decision either.

The Belgian could provide us with great service for a couple of years at least and hopefully, we don’t lose him next season.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.
