Jan Vertonghen may have played his last game for Spurs.
The Belgian defender’s contract with the North London club expires on June 30th, at which point he is free to leave on a free transfer.
And, whilst Tottenham want him to sign a short-term contract extension with them that will enable him to see out the rest of the rescheduled season with them, the 33 year old is in two minds whether to accept it.
Like a number of other players in his position, he fears that if he picks up an injury in the games that remain, he could jeopardise his next move, with is likely to be the last lucrative one of his career.
And with the Premier League having set a deadline of June 23rd for the contract position of every player to be resolved, time is running out to reach an agreement with the player.
Tottenham have made it clear to Vertonghen that they are not prepared to offer him a longer term deal, bringing an end to his eight year stay with them.
