Tottenham extend Vertonghen contract until 2020

18 diciembre 2018 17:13

Tottenham have triggered their option to extend defender Jan Vertonghen's contract until at least 2020, the club have confirmed.

The Belgium international's deal was due to expire at the end of this season, but Spurs have moved to tie him down for a further 12 months.

The development comes as no surprise with the 31-year-old last week revealing an announcement was imminent.

Vertonghen said talks over a longer-term agreement were yet to commence, but the temporary extension allows the Premier League side to minimise the risk of losing him on a free transfer as they weigh up their options.

"The way I feel now, I've got at least four to five good years left in the tank," he told the Evening Standard at the time.

"There are no talks [with the club], but that's something to discuss. At the moment I feel great at Tottenham."

Vertonghen has generally been a regular since arriving at Spurs from Ajax in 2012, although injury problems have restricted him to nine Premier League starts this term.

He has faced increased competition for a starting berth from emerging centre-back Juan Foyth and missed the 1-0 weekend win over Burnley because of a thigh problem, which will keep him out of action until after the turn of the year.

Part of the Belgium squad that reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russia, Vertonghen has made 264 appearances in total for Tottenham.
