Jan Vertonghen has revealed that he is not planning to sign a new Tottenham Hotspur contract – but insists he is happy at the club.

The defender was reported to be on the verge of penning a new deal to keep him at White Hart Lane beyond the end of his current agreement.

However, the 27-year-old Belgium international says that he has decided not to extend his deal, which is due to expire in four years’ time.

“I am not signing. No. We agreed not to. I would prefer not to say why,” Vertonghen told the London Evening Standard.

“I still have four years left. I am happy at the club and I think they are happy with me. That’s where it ends. I am very happy, we have a good manager, we have a good team and a lot of good players.

“The squad is very big and you have to work hard to play every game, and I hope I am playing again soon.

“It is good [under Mauricio Pochettino]. He is working well with a lot of videos and individually he talks a lot with the players. He is a manager who expects a lot from players. We work hard and that is good — it will pay off in the end.”
