‘He will sign it’: Football expert claims defender would sign two-year Spurs contract

Mauricio Pochettino extended the contracts of a couple of his key players last summer to avoid any possibility of his squad being weakened before the window closed.

A year later though, the Spurs boss is yet to resolve the futures of certain important players at the club, including key defender Jan Vertonghen.

The 32-year-old has only a year left on his contract after a satisfactory season which saw him help the team reach the final of the UEFA Champions League, where they were beaten by Liverpool.

Since Spurs often choose not to offer long-term deals to players over the age of 30, Vertonghen’s days at the club appear to be numbered.

The defender, who scored in the Champions League tie against Borussia Dorrmund last term, is still a vital member of the Tottenham squad.

And according to Belgian footbSPAM Preventionall expert Kristoff Terreur, Vertonghen would agree to sign a new deal if a two-year extension is offered.

“He’s willing to stay and play under Pochettino. It will depend on what Spurs are offering him.” Terreur told Sky Sports

“If they offer him a two-year deal he will sign it. They will have to offer him good money too because it’s his last contract.”
