Spurs to offer Vertonghen improved contract

Tottenham are set to offer Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen a pay rise in a bid to keep the centre half at White Hart Lane, report the Telegraph.

The player dropped a big hint that if the club failed to qualify for the Champions League this term then he could see his future away from the club and is currently two years into his four year deal.

Spurs have stated they have no intention of letting the 26 year old leave and it is likely they will look to utilise the option of extending his contract by a further year, and offer a significant rise on his £40,000 a week wages.

When asked after the weekend defeat to Norwich whether he will be happy to stay if they finish outside the top four, Vertonghen said: Those are always difficult questions. What I want is to play in the Champions League with Tottenham, so, hopefully, I will get there this year.

“I don’t complain about anything. Let’s see after the end of the season and after the World Cup.”

Tottenham currently lay in fifth place and are six points off of fourth placed Liverpool, and Vertonghen has joined goalkeeper Hugo Lloris who has also suggested he may leave should they fail to qualify.

I think it's going to take something like the appointment of van Gaal (sorry Tim - good try, but not quite ready yet!!) to get both Vert and Lloris to give it one more season

I understand the desire to lock him up, but, I am fed up with players signing 3 or 4 year contracts and then wanting out half way through. Champions League Footy is the "Get away from a Team card". He was happy to sign at the time and now Man U are interested (Not in Champions League next year either) and he is going to consoder his options after the World Cup. You only option should be to see out the contract that you signed.
