Tottenham defender, Jan Vertonghen, is reportedly learning a new language as he looks to seal an exit from Spurs this summer, according to a report in Football Insider.
The defender’s contract with Spurs runs out at the end of this season and reports indicate that he is likely to leave after rejecting a one-year extension offer (Football Insider).
Football Insider now report that the long-serving defender is eyeing a move to either La Liga or Serie A and is thus primed to start learning either Spanish or Italian over the coming weeks.
They claim that the defender is seeking a minimum two-year contract amidst widespread interest in his services.

Although Vertonghen has looked a shadow of his old self this season, I felt he was just regaining a bit of form right before the season was suspended. I can’t see Tottenham handing him more than a year’s extension and my gut instinct is that he will move to Italy. The pace of the Serie A will suit him and he could quite easily be a valuable asset for the likes of Inter and Roma for the next two or three seasons.
