Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has not been in the best of forms this season, but that has not stopped his future from coming under speculation.
The 27-year-old centre-back, who can also play at left-back, has been linked with a number of top European clubs for a while.
Vertonghen’s talent and ability is unquestionable, and it is easy to understand why some of Europe’s elite would have an eye for him.
However, the Belgium international may not be interested in leaving Tottenham anytime soon. Following his 100th appearance on Saturday, Vertonghen stated that he hopes to play 100 more matches for the North London outfit.
"@Jan_Vertonghen: A clean sheet is positive but we wanted to win. I'm happy to have made 100 apps for the club & hopefully I'll go to 200."— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 6, 2014
Vertonghen’s hint about his future will please many Spurs fans perhaps, but his comment about keeping a clean sheet against Crystal Palace being ‘positive’ may not hold much water.
Tottenham were expected to win against Palace at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Saturday, but they failed.
That’s a disappointment. Period.
