Belgium’s future at White Hart Lane has been in doubt for some time now.
Former Tottenham Hotspur head coach Andre Villas-Boas is interested in returning to White Hart Lane this summer to sign unsettled defender Jan Vertonghen, according to reports in the Daily Express.

The Portuguese left the north London club last December after being sacked in the aftermath of a 5-0 home thrashing by rivals Liverpool in the Premier League.
However, Villas-Boas has recently returned to work though after being appointed as the new manager of mega-rich Russian Premier League giants Zenit St Petersburg, and now the Portuguese is understood to be keen to strengthen his new team’s back four four for next season by persuading Vertonghen to work with him again.
The versatile 26-year-old, who can operate either as a central defender or as a left back, has already dropped a strong hint that he will quit Tottenham at the end of the campaign if they fail to finish in the top four of the Premier League come May time, and so miss out on qualification for the Uefa Champions League too.
But with the player still contracted to Spurs until June 2016, Zenit may have to break the bank though in order to persuade the Premier League outfit to sell the Belgium.
