Jan Vertonghen open to extending contract at Tottenham after Jose Mourinho’s arrival

Jan Vertonghen is open to discussing a new contract with Tottenham after the arrival of Jose Mourinho, according to Sky Sports.

The Belgian recently returned from injury after not playing for a month. His last appearance was the 5-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

Vertonghen is a free agent in the summer and was open to signing a new deal under former manager Mauricio Pochettino too (h/t Sky Sports).

However, Bayer Leverkusen and AS Roma had been linked with the 32-year-old centre-back (h/t Sky Sports).

The defender can also discuss a new contract with foreign clubs from January. The report adds that no formal discussions have taken place between Daniel Levy and Vertonghen’s camp.

The Belgian is still one of the most experienced defenders in the Premier League, and it will be interesting to see what the future holds for him.

Tottenham to keep Vertonghen?

Vertonghen can also play as the left-back and his experience could be great under Mourinho.

The Portuguese has seen two wins from two games so far, but our defence isn’t keeping teams from scoring.

Vertonghen could be tried in the heart of the defence and his partnership with Toby Alderweireld was one of the best in the Premier League.

Alderweireld is also a free agent at the end of the season while Christian Eriksen is on the same boat.

Vertonghen’s age is the only concern here and handing him a long-term deal might not be the smartest move.

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.
