Vertonghen joined the Lilywhites in 2012, from Ajax, and has formed a solid partnership with fellow Belgian Toby Alderweireld but has found regular first-team football hard to come by this season.

‘Super Jan’ as nicknamed by the fans, has netted on 12 occasions for Spurs over his eight-year spell ain North London. (Soccerbase)

With Jose Mourinho reportedly looking for a new centre-back in the summer, could this be the end to Vertonghen’s time in N17?

Spurs Web Opinion

What a servant Vertonghen has been for Spurs! Perhaps, he is not quite the player he was a couple of years ago, but by no means has his Spurs legacy been dented. Go back to that 2016/17 season, the last at The Lane, our two Belgian centre-backs were a brick wall.
