Tottenham fans fear Jan Vertonghen could leave

It has somewhat gone under the radar, but Jan Vertonghen will see his current deal with Tottenham Hotspur expire at the end of the season.

Spurs are yet to address the situation surrounding Toby Alderweireld, with the centre-back’s future far from secure despite returning to the team.

However, Tottenham are also facing a potentially tricky situation when it comes to Vertonghen, who will see his contract expire next June.

The 31-year-old has developed into one of the best central defenders in European football over the last few years, and is closing on 250 appearances for Spurs following his move from Ajax in the summer of 2012.

Vertonghen, as it stands, will be free to discuss terms with foreign clubs in January, however, and the Tottenham fans are becoming extremely concerned.

It would be fair to say that the defender could pick up a much healthier salary away from Spurs, and the club’s fans probably have a right to feel a touch uneasy.
