Jan Vertonghen brought an end to his eight-year association with Tottenham Hotspur career yesterday when it was announced that he has now left the club.

The 33-year-old found himself out of contract in North London following the end of the Premier League campaign and is now a free agent.

Vertonghen has admitted that he will be making a decision on his next club sooner rather than later and is currently mulling over potential options.

The Belgian admits that he does not feel pressured into making an immediate decision given the length of time before the new campaign begins and revealed that he already has an idea in mind and is waiting to see if it will come to fruition.

Vertonghen, who joined Tottenham from Ajax in 2012, did not feature in his side’s last Premier League game of the season, a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace; with his final appearance coming as a late replacement in the win at Newcastle on July 15th (transfermarkt).

“That will be out probably sooner rather than later,” he told talkSPORT.

“I’m considering the options and making a good choice.

“Obviously the window now is longer than it was last year, so we’ve got a bit of time to assess the best option.”

When asked if he could remain in England, he added: “It will all depend on the options,”

“I’ve got something in my head and we’ll see if that will come around or not.”
