Vertonghen keen to stay at Tottenham

Tottenham have been handed a boost after defender Jan Vertonghen revealed that he is likely to sign a new contract with the club, reports the London Evening Standard.

Jan Vertonghen

The 27-year-old’s future in North London has been under considerable doubt this summer, amid reported interest from Barcelona. Despite that, Tottenham are determined not to sell the player, and have offered him new terms; a five-year deal worth £60,000 per week.

Vertonghen confirmed that he is likely to commit his future to the club, telling a Belgian radio station: “I still had a four-year contract but I see that they have offered me a new five-year contract as a great sign of confidence. It goes without saying that I would like to stay at Tottenham."

Having joined in the summer of 2012, Vertonghen still has two years remaining on his current deal, but Tottenham are keen to extend his contract to ward off all interested parties. The Belgian has been unable to help Spurs to qualify for the Champions League, but has been a solid performer, making 82 appearances and scoring eight goals.

Should he indeed agree terms, he would join goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in extending his stay at White Hart Lane for another five years.
