Vertonghen reveals he's weighing up 'the pros and cons' of signing a new Spurs deal

Jan Vertonghen admits he is weighing up ‘the pros and cons’ of signing a new contract at Tottenham as the defender enters the final months of his deal at the club.

The Belgian international’s current contract expires at the end of the season and there has so far been no progress about an extension for the 32-year-old, Vertonghen considering leaving north London after eight years and over 300 appearances as a Spurs player.

Several clubs across the continent are believed to be considering a move for the experienced centre-back, though Vertonghen refused to rule out remaining at the club as he deliberates on whether to extend his stay with Jose Mourinho’s side.

“I’m in a process right now that I have to grab a piece of paper and write down the pros and cons of the options I will have soon,” Vertonghen told Belgian show De Kleedkamer.

“I will really have to decide what I want in my career. In three to four years, I will normally return to the place where I will likely settle down.

“I have to start thinking about where I still want to live, what language I want to learn, what culture I still want to live in.

“And also, very importantly, which competitions and prizes I still want to win. I don’t want to regret anything in my career.”
