Report gives update on Jan Vertonghen contract situation after Mourinho appointment


Tottenham Hotspur defender, Jan Vertonghen, is well into the final year of his current contract at White Hart Lane after spending eight seasons with the club.

In that time, Vertonghen has played 285 games for the Lilywhites, scoring ten goals (Wikipedia).

Vertonghen is currently set to leave North London on a free transfer in the summer of 2020 unless he can agree a new contract or a January transfer away.

As it stands, the Belgian defender would be able to talk to potential new clubs in January about a pre-contract agreement, as long as they were not an English side.

However, a report has now indicated that Vertonghen is still keen to remain at Tottenham Hotspur, even after the appointment of Jose Mourinho.

Sky Sports claim that Roma and Bayer Leverkusen are both interested in the centre-back.

The report adds that he wanted to sign a new deal under Pochettino and that has not changed under the new manager, after Vertonghen was told he was not for sale last summer.

Formal discussions over a deal have yet to take place between Jan and Levy.
