Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is set to sign a one-year extension to his deal, which is due to expire at the end of the season according to The Sun.

The Belgian defender is in the last year of his contract at Tottenham but the club have the option to extend it by a further twelve months.

Vertonghen joined Spurs from Ajax in 2012 and has gone on to make 243 appearances in all competitions.   The 31-year-old was one of Mauricio Pochettino’s standout performers last season and is known for his consistent displays at the heart of the defence.

Tottenham fans will be looking to Daniel Levy to sort Vertonghen’s future sooner rather than later as he will be able to speak with foreign clubs in January.

“My contract is expiring at the end of the season, but Tottenham have an option to extend it with one year,” Vertonghen said recently, according to HLN journalist Kristof Terreur.

“I think they will take up the option. We’ll see what happens.”

Fellow Belgian Mousa Dembele is also in the last year of his contract at Spurs, while Toby Alderweireld’s future has been well publicised throughout the summer.
