Jan Vertonghen is ‘expected’ to see out the remainder of the rescheduled Premier League season with Tottenham before leaving the club on a free transfer.
The Belgium international is out-of-contract this summer and expected to depart after eight seasons in north London, though Spurs have offered the defender a short-term deal to cover their remaining nine fixtures of the current campaign.
Vertonghen’s current deal is set to expire on June 30 and he is believed to be keen on a new challenge abroad, however, he remains committed to Jose Mourinho’s side and has returned to contact training ahead of the league’s restart later this month.
According to the Evening Standard, Vertonghen is attracting interest from the likes of Inter Milan and Fiorentina, though is not amongst a group of out-of-contract players fearful of jeopardising his next move by suffering a serious injury.
No agreement has yet been reached to extend his stay at the club beyond June, but according to the report, both Vertonghen and out-of-contract goalkeeper Michel Vorm are expected to finish the season with Spurs before moving on this summer.
Clubs have been given until June 23 to agree short-term extensions with players.
