After a note on a Spurs website that responded to a ITK comment, Sky Sources ‘broke’ this afternoon with the claim that Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen would be staying at White Hart Lane and that a new deal, similar to the one signed by Hugo LLoris may even be signed in the next few days.
The Belgian defender enjoyed a positive World Cup for his country and those performances led in part to reports of a move to Barcelona. The Sky story followed on from another update suggesting that Jan was going nowhere.
So with Lloris and Vertonghen both likely to commit their futures to the club, media attention has turned elsewhere with the claim that Spurs are set to cut their losses and take a hit of up to £11m on a sale of Roberto Soldado.
The link here is to Inter Milan who have struggled in Serie A and would be looking for a new striker as part of their rebuilding plans. Parts of the story just might add up but would Daniel Levy really accept £15m for a player who cost £26m just 12 months ago?
