Jan Vertonghen has made a decision on whether or not he wants to stay at Tottenham

Jan Vertonghen

Jan Vertonghen wants to extend his stay at Tottenham beyond this season.

The Belgium international is out of contract next June and does not know whether he will be offered fresh terms by the club.

According to Football Insider (opens in new tab), the former Ajax (opens in new tab) stopper is keen to remain in north London.

However, Vertonghen turns 33 in April and Spurs (opens in new tab) chairman Daniel Levy may only offer him a short-term deal.

The defender was left out of Mauricio Pochettino's starting XI for Tottenham's first three games of the season.

He has since returned to the fold, though, and was impressive in Saturday's 4-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace (opens in new tab).
