In an interview Belgian television show De Kleedkamer earlier on today, Tottenham Hotspur centre back Jan Vertonghen has admitted that the time has come for him to start thinking about his future.
The Belgian national team defender’s contract with the north London club is due to expire at the end of June and due to this he has drawn links to several clubs including Inter.
“I’m in a process right now that I have to grab a piece of paper and write down the pros and cons of the options I will have soon,” he began.
“I will really have to decide what I want in my career. In three to four years, I will go to the place where I will likely settle down.
He then went on to hint that his next move could be abroad with him admitting he needs to work out which language he wishes to learn among other things that would come with moving elsewhere.
“I have to start thinking about where I still want to live, what language I want to learn, what culture I still want to live in and also, very importantly, which competitions and prizes I still want to win. I don’t want to regret anything in my career.”
Vertonghen has been with Spurs since a Summer of 2012 move from Dutch powerhouses Ajax and he has since went on to represent the club on no less than 311 occasions across all competitions to date.
The 32-year-old has scored 14 goals and provided seven assists for his teammates in that time.
