Jan Vertonghen has refused to commit his long-term future to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Belgian defender has a reputation as one of the top centre-halves in the Premier League and he played a key role in helping Spurs to finish in the top four and reach the Champions League final last season.

The 32-year-old scored one goal in 22 Premier League appearances for Spurs last season as they secured Champions League qualification once again under Mauricio Pochettino.

Vertonghen’s future at the north London club has been a source of speculation recently because his contract expires at the end of next season.

The Belgium international has now said that he is happy at Spurs for the time being, but he has refused to commit his long-term future to the Lilywhites.

Speaking in an interview quoted by The Sun, Vertonghen said: “I’ve got a year left. I will have to see what happens.

“I love being here. I feel great with the manager, he’s been supporting me and making me better.

“It’s the best club to play for at the moment.”

Vertonghen joined Tottenham from Ajax in in 2012 and has played 285 times for the north London side, scoring 10 goals.

Spurs will be looking to maintain their place in the top four next season and also challenge for the Premier League as they aim to win their first major trophy under Pochettino.

They lost 2-0 to Liverpool FC in the Champions League final last term to miss out on winning Europe’s most prestigious trophy.
