The Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are delighted with this…
Tottenham have been signing their key players down to long-term deals on a seemingly weekly basis as of late – with Mauricio Pochettino keen to ensure that his impressive squad remains together for the foreseeable future.
However, up until today, Jan Vertonghen’s name had been markedly absent from all discussions in the Tavern. Whilst the players around him had all signed new deals, he appeared as though he was the only one that had yet to sign on.
That changed today, though, with Tottenham confirming on Twitter that the Belgian defender had signed a new long-term deal with the club.

At last! This has come as a huge relief to the Tottenham fans in the Tavern, many of whom were fearing that he could leave the club.
The Belgian has formed a stellar partnership with Toby Alderweireld over the last year, with many in the Tavern touting them as the best defensive pairing in the Premier League.
Our landlord is touting Tottenham to return to form, after suffering a disappointing defeat against Chelsea last weekend.
