Tottenham Star Happy To Stay Despite Liverpool Interest

Posted by

Belgium star has also been linked with Manchester United and Napoli.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen has insisted that he wants to remain at White Hart Lane.

The 27-year-old has just over two years left to run on his contract, but it has been strongly reported that he will look to move on this summer, after Spurs failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Napoli are said to be keen on signing Vertonghen.

However, Vertonghen, who is currently on international duty with Belgium, is adamant that he is happy in North London.

Spurs are currently without a manager, after sacking head coach Tim Sherwood earlier this month.

Ajax’s Frank de Boer, who worked with Vertonghen in Holland, is one of the bosses that has been tipped to replace Sherwood.

Vertonghen has great respect for De Boer, but he is confident that Tottenham can have a bright future whoever chairman Daniel Levy appoints.

“I’ve got a couple more years at Tottenham and I’m happy, and I want to stay there, so it doesn’t matter who the manager will be,” Vertonghen told Sky Sports.

“He [De Boer] is a good manager but there are other good managers as well so, again, the chairman will make a good decision.”

Vertonghen’s Belgium side begin their World Cup campaign in Belo Horizonte on June 17.

They have been drawn in Group H, along with Algeria, Russia and South Korea.

Although they have been blessed with a relatively easy group, Belgium are likely to meet either Germany or Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal if they progress to the first knockout round.
