Tottenham Hotspur have offered Jan Vertonghen a contract extension until the end of the season, according to reports in Belgium.
Vertonghen has been backed to leave Tottenham at the end of the campaign, with the likes of Inter Milan, Roma, Real Betis and Valencia said to be interested in his signature (Calcio Mercato).
The centre-back is not expected to be at the club next year but there have been question marks raised over whether he will even finish the season with Spurs (ESPN) with his contract running out this month.
Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad now report that the Lilywhites have tabled an offer to extend the defender’s stay until the end of the campaign.
It is revealed that the 33-year-old’s contract with Spurs runs out on June 30 and the club have now offered to extend it until the end of July.
However, it is claimed that Vertonghen does not want to jeopardize a potential summer move by picking up an injury in the final nine games of the season. Therefore, it is suggested that he is uncertain over signing the deal.

While the report does say that it is uncertain whether Vertonghen will sign, it certainly does not rule out the possibility of him doing so. I expect the centre-half to commit himself to the club for the final nine games but it is clear that he will not be at Spurs next season.
