Report: Tottenham Hotspur expecting Jan Vertonghen to agree new long-term contract

Jan Vertonghen's current deal at Tottenham Hotspur does not expire until 2018.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has been offered a new contract.

The Belgian is set to be rewarded for having an impressive season at the heart of Tottenham’s defence.

Vertonghen has helped the Lilywhites keep a better defensive record than any other Premier League side this term, and the North London club have now moved to secure his future.

The 28-year-old’s current contract, which is reportedly worth £40,000-a-week, expires in 2018.

Vertonghen is expected to earn a major pay-rise, and Spurs are optimistic that a positive conclusion to the talks will be reached in the near future.

Tottenham have already moved to sign Dele Alli, Josh Onomah, and Mousa Dembele up to long-term contracts this season.

They also are planning to offer new terms to Christian Eriksen and Harry Kane (Daily Mail), as Mauricio Pochettino looks to ensure that his current squad are kept at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future.
