'Sign him up', 'Immense' - Tottenham fans react to offer reportedly ready for defender

Tottenham fans been reacting on Twitter after it was reported that the club is readying a new deal for defender Jan Vertonghen.

Football.London claims that Vertonghen, 30, will be offered a “bumper deal” by Spurs as they hope to wrap up an agreement before the start of next season.

It is understood that there is no option to trigger an extension in the Belgium international’s current deal, which expires next year, so they have moved to offer a new deal with Mauricio Pochettino seeing the centre-back as a mentor for the younger players in his squad.

With Toby Alderweireld set to exit this summer, Ajax wonderkid Matthjis de Ligt is said to be someone that Spurs are targetting to welcome to North London, and having Vertonghen around to help him with his development is key in the eyes of Pochettino.

Vertonghen has made 43 appearances across all competitions this season and has missed just one Premier League fixture due to an ankle knock he suffered in training.

Spurs fans are delighted to see that the former Ajax ace will be rewarded for his fine form over the summer and took to social media to react.
