Jan Vertonghen has suggested he might seek pastures new when his contract with Tottenham Hotspur comes to an end. The Belgium defender's current deal with the north London club is set to expire this summer, though we are not sure what will happen if the Premier League season is extended. It is believed Spurs boss Jose Mourinho wants Vertonghen to stay with the Lilywhites, but hinted that the Belgian's agent was being difficult over negotiating a new deal. "I want to sign with the right club. It could be Spurs, or another club," the 33-year-old, who joined Spurs in 2012, told Belgian TV channel Play Sports. "I really want to continue at top level for a few more years and I would like to play European football next season. "Since January, a number of clubs have come forward with serious proposals. "The Spanish and Italian leagues are the most obvious for the time being, but I will keep all options open." Vertoghen added: "I'm free, of course, and many clubs don't have the money to do transfers. Transfer-free players like me are even more coveted in the coronavirus crisis."
