- July 28, 2014
Jan Vertonghen appeared on the Belgium TV show Vive le Velo and talked about his future at Spurs.
On Sunday, Vertonghen confirmed he is discussing a new five-year-deal with Spurs and the Belgium defender also talked of Barcelona’s reported interest.
On Barcelona, Vertonghen said: “Rumours will always be there, but I just go back to Tottenham.”
Vertonghen continued: “The interest of a beautiful club like FC Barcelona excites me for sure. This is a confirmation that you’re doing well. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, they say, but for the moment there is certainly no fire.”
Reports in the Belgium press confirm that Vertonghen has four years left on his current deal at White Hart Lane and is set to negotiate a new five-year-contract.
Vertonghen added on Belgium radio: “It goes without saying that I would like to stay at Tottenham. My contract extension I consider to be a great sign of confidence.”
The Belgium defender returns to Spurs pre-season training, along with Mousa Dembele and Nacer Chadli, on Tuesday.
