Vertonghen open to Premier League stay

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Jan Vertonghen has refused to rule out staying in the Premier League after leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The versatile defender, primarily a centre-back but sometimes deployed on the left flank, spent nine years at Spurs and made a total of 314 appearances in all competitions for the club. He has accumulated 118 international caps with Belgium as well in his career so far. Despite talks about a potential extension throughout the 2019/20 season, his contract has expired and both the player and the club have confirmed the parting of ways. 

At the age of 33, Vertonghen can certainly offer a lot to any potential suitor and given his quality and vast experience, he shouldn’t be short of offers at the moment, especially as a free agent. Both Manchester clubs have been credited with interest in his services.

Vertonghen says he could take advantage of the transfer window being closed later than usual this year to give his future some serious thought, he expects to make his decision ‘sooner rather than later’.
