Vertonghen remains very committed to Tottenham Hotspur.

Updated: Feb 18

Vertonghen is out of contract in the summer and has been constantly linked with various clubs across Europe.

Jan Vertonghen's agent Tom De Mul says the defender is “very committed” to Tottenham.

The 32-year-old, who joined the Lilywhites from Ajax back in 2012, is out of contract in the summer and has been constantly linked with various clubs across Europe.

Vertonghen was emotional when he was substituted early in the second half of Spurs' FA Cup fourth-round replay win over Southampton on Wednesday, with various tabloids suggesting the Belgian is unhappy at the north London club.

However, De Mul has quashed such suggestions, saying his client was just disappointed about being subbed off.

De Mul said in an interview with Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws: “He is feeling better now. His reaction had nothing to do with his future.

“He was just disappointed when he got subbed off. Unhappy about his performance and the team’s performance in the first hour.”

He added: “Jan still wants to achieve great things with Spurs. He wants to qualify for the Europa or Champions League, to win the FA Cup.

“He is 32, but still very ambitious. He is focused. He still has so many targets. The Euros are a super important goal too.

“It’s what I admire in Jan. He wants to play at the top level as long as possible. He is very still hungry.”

De Mul also confirmed Vertonghen was “still super happy at Spurs” and he is enjoying life in London.

“He is still very committed. There’s a lot of respect for Tottenham, just like there is a lot of respect from the club towards us. That’s logical after eight seasons. There is a connection,” De Mul said.

“We haven’t reached an agreement (on a contract extension) as yet, but we don’t rule out anything.

“There is interest in him as a free agent, but Spurs is a very interesting option for us. The door’s still open.”
