Jan Vertonghen has said Tottenham is “the best club to play for” amid speculation surrounding future.
The defender, 32, has just one year left on his contract and there has been chatter over the last year or so that Spurs could look to cash in.
However, speaking ahead of Tottenham’s pre-season tour of Asia, Vertonghen revealed he is more than happy where he is.
“I’ve got a year left, I will have to see what happens,” Vertonghen said (via the London Evening Standard).
“I love being here. I feel great with the manager, he’s been supporting me and making me a better player.
“I’ve got everything I want. It’s the best club to play for at the moment.”
Vertonghen has been one of Spurs’ most consistent performers under Mauricio Pochettino and played a starring role as the Londoners reached the Champions League final last season.
The Belgian’s experience could be even more important next term if his international teammate Toby Alderweireld leaves the club.
Alderweireld has been linked with Roma, who are said to be among the clubs willing to trigger his £25 million release clause.
However, the centre-back has travelled with Tottenham to Asia while others, including Danny Rose, have been left at home to secure transfers to other clubs.
That perhaps suggests Alderweireld is in Pochettino’s plans for the new season, although things can change very quickly in football.
