Here in the Football Transfer Tavern, our punters are looking up with interest and away from the conversations they were having about the Champions League group stages.
Our landlord notes that Tottenham Hotspur could well be set to offer one of their players a new deal according to Metro.
The North London club are considering offering Jan Vertonghen a new deal and are desperate to keep the versatile defender at the club.
The Belgian is considering his future and as our landlord points out, he seems to have his heart set on the Champions League and playing in the top competition in Europe, which remains in doubt following Spurs’ shock weekend defeat to Norwich City.
Spurs currently trail fourth-placed Liverpool by six points and we think that the Europa League is about the best they can hope for next season!
One of our punters notes that improved terms could well be something that the former Ajax defender is keen on at least considering.
The fact of the matter is very few of the top sides in Europe have been linked with the star meaning he might be better off where he is!
Will Vertonghen stay at White Hart Lane for the long-term or will he look to depart if Spurs don’t clinch fourth? Let us know your thoughts below.
