Jan Vertonghen is close to signing a new contract with Tottenham Hotspur, the defender’s agent has revealed.

The Belgium international’s future was the subject of speculation over the summer following Spurs’ failure to qualify for the Champions League.

However, his representative, Mustapha Nakhli, says that the 27-year-old is determined to help Spurs secure a top-four finish this season.

“We have spoken to Daniel Levy about a new contract for Jan and the negotiations were very good – we hope to sort everything out very soon,” Vertonghen told Sky Sports.

“He is happy at Tottenham and wants to play for the club. He wants to play Champions League with Tottenham and he has a very good feeling about the new manager.

“Last year they made many changes and brought in many new players and it was not so good but this season it is possible for Tottenham to qualify for the Champions League.”
