Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Jan Vertonghen will sign a two-year contract if offered, says Belgian football expert Kristoff Terreur.

Terreur told Sky Sports that Vertonghen is happy at Tottenham, but a one year deal would not provide him the security he wants.

Vertonghen's current contract expires in a year's time. 

 

Spurs do not normally like to offer long term deals to players in their 30s.

Terreur said: "He's willing to stay and play under Pochettino. It will depend on what Spurs are offering him.

"If they offer him a two-year deal he will sign it. They will have to offer him good money too because it's his last contract."

If there is a player worth making an exception for, then it should be a model pro like Vertonghen.

Tottenham are also at risk of losing Toby Alderweireld, and the pair have been the cornerstones of the club's success.

Paying Vertonghen a bit extra over two years would surely still be cheaper than laying out on a replacement, and he'd probably be better too.
