Vertonghen has been with Tottenham since 2012, having signed from Ajax. But the 32-year-old has only a few months left on his contract. The Belgian has admitted that he will have tough decisions to make regarding his future in the coming months.

Speaking to De Kleedkamer, Vertonghen said (h/t Football.London):

“I will really have to decide what I want in my career. I have to start thinking about where I still want to live, what language I want to learn, what culture I still want to live in. And also very importantly: which competitions and prizes I still want to win. I don’t want to regret anything in my career.”

The 32-year-old also hinted that he would want to stay involved at the top level for at least three to four years before moving to a place where he would want to settle down. Vertonghen, in his eight years at the club, has been a fantastic servant. The 32-year-old has racked up over 300 appearances for Tottenham and has captained the team on many occasions.

However, the 2019/20 season has been a difficult one for the Belgian with his powers seemingly on the vane. There was plenty of interest in his services in the January transfer window with Napoli and Ajax lining up to sign him. (h/t The Telegraph)

Vertonghen’s contract is up for expiry at the end of June. However, with the season being suspended for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus pandemic, there is some confusion surrounding the situation. It remains to be seen if Tottenham take a late decision to extend the Belgian’s contract or allow him to leave on a free transfer.
