Vertonghen namechecks Werner as Tottenham defender hints at next deal

    Date published: Saturday 27th June 2020 5:24

    Jan Vertonghen has revealed that there is “movement” when it comes to negotiations over his next contract away from Tottenham.

    The defender is set to bring an end to his lengthy stay at Spurs this summer. Vertonghen has agreed to extend his deal until the end of this season, but will leave as a free agent after that.

    Reports have linked Vertonghen with a move abroad, with the likes of Roma, Inter Milan and Real Betis said to be interested.

    And despite many clubs being unsure of their finances, Vertonghen is confident that he will still be able to find a good deal.

    “I can’t say much now, but there is enough movement,” he told Sporza in Belgium. “Only most teams wait until the current competitions are finished and they are sure of their TV money.

    “The transfer from Timo Werner to Chelsea already proves that there is still enough money in the market.

    “Once the ball starts rolling, it will be all right.”



    A return to Ajax had also been touted for Vertonghen, who he left eight years ago to join Spurs. However, the 33-year-old insists he is not bothered that it is not an option.

    Responding to Ajax director Marc Overmars’ confirmation that they won’t be offering Vertonghen a deal, the defender said: “That is not a disappointment, because it has been clear for a long time.

    “Only it is only now in the media. I am shocked that it is said so explicitly.

    “Ajax will always be special to me, but actually it was never an issue. I already said that I did not want to compete with my good friend Daley Blind. He is doing very well there.”
