Tottenham haven’t offered Jan Vertonghen an extension on his current deal and the Belgian could leave Spurs before the end of this season, according to a report from ESPN.
His current deal expires on the 30th of June, although he has told the club that he is open to signing a new deal with them for the next two years, Spurs don’t think they need to keep him.
The Premier League should restart close to the end of June and FIFA has allowed teams to extend the contracts of their players that would be out of a contract by the end of that month.
However, a team might decide against offering a new deal to a player and that seems to be the case with Vertonghen.
Jose Mourinho is already preparing for life without the Belgian who had initially not wanted to remain at the club.
He just turned 33 and the club thinks they would be better off signing a younger replacement for him.
If Spurs doesn’t extend his deal so that he can finish the season with them, then he probably has played his last game for the club.
ESPN further reports that Vertonghen has a number of suitors who want him, but he has insisted that he hasn’t made up his mind on where his future lies at the moment.
