Vestergaardâs Southampton stint
Southampton signed Jannik Vestergaard from German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach in July of 2018, for a fee believed to be aroundÂ â¬25m.
The 28-year-old has since gone on to notch 69 appearances in all competitions for the Saints, across which he has scored four goals.
Vestergaard did struggle somewhat for regular first-team action during the 2019/20 campaign.
However, barring a period during which he was sidelined with a knee injury, the Dane has since proven a key figure for Ralph Hasenhuttlâs men so far this term, featuring 21 times in the league, and once in the FA Cup last weekend, as the Saints booked their spot in the competition’s semi-finals.
Vestergaard on Tottenham links
Vestergaard, in turn, has recently been linked with a move to one of the Premier Leagueâs top clubs.
The stopper will have just one year left on his current contract come the summer, which could make him an affordable target at the end of the campaign.
Tottenham, meanwhile, were credited with an interest in his services earlier this month.

And now, whilst on international duty, Vestergaard has responded to such links.
The defender appears happy with the interest, revealing his take that it comes as something of ‘a pat on the back’:
âI can only say that of course it’s always a pat on the back with stories of interest from other big clubs.â
However, he then went on to state that he is contracted to Southampton and focused on their matches:
âBut right now I have a contract with Southampton so, it’s not something I can talk about.
âI focus on the matches in the Premier League, on the FA Cup cup semi-final at Wembley, and now the important matches with the national team.â
