Michel Vorm and Jan Vertonghen will leave Tottenham this summer – with midfielder Harry Winks confirming the news on his Instagram account.

The experienced pair both signed short-term contracts last month to make themselves available to play in Spurs’ final nine Premier League, but will now depart – with their deals expiring at the end of the month.

Vertonghen, who was an unused substitute for today’s victory at Crystal Palace, joined from Ajax in the summer of 2012 and has been an outstanding servant to the club, making more than 300 appearances in all competitions.

The Belgian’s final start in a Spurs shirt came in the goalless draw with AFC Bournemouth earlier this month – helping keep a clean sheet playing next to his international colleague and close friend Toby Alderweireld.

Meanwhile Vorm, who left Tottenham at the end of last season, re-joined to cover for the injured Hugo Lloris after his shoulder injury at Brighton back in October.

The Dutchman made just one appearance this term and it was an evening to forget for the former Swansea City goalkeeper as his costly error was the catalyst for Spurs’ FA Cup exit against Norwich City prior to the break amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

“Gonna miss these two❤️Been a huge part of my career since I came through the academy both on and off the pitch. All the best in your next chapters boys,” Winks said on Instagram.
