Jan Vertoghen waiting on Spurs boss announcement before deciding future

Published Add your comment

Jan Vertonghen will wait to find out the identity of Tottenham's next manager before making a decision over his future, according to the Telegraph.

The defender has previously hinted he would leave if Spurs weren't able to secure qualification for the Champions League - an objective they fell well short of this season.

According to the Telegraph, the Belgian, who has been named as part of his country's World Cup squad for the tournament in Brazil next month, would have been willing to quit had Tim Sherwood been retained as Tottenham manager.

However the 45-year-old was let go this week having taken over from Andre Villas-Boas, the man who took Vertonghen to Spurs, in December.

Now the paper reports that he is waiting to see who chairman Daniel Levy appoints as manager before deciding whether to try and force his way out of White Hart Lane or not.

Current favourite for the job is Southampton boss Maurico Pochettino, ahead of Ajax manager Frand de Boer, who oversaw Vertonghen's development while he was with the Amsterdam club, prior to his move to Tottenham in 2012.

Previous reports suggest that Spurs are keen to hang on to the 27-year-old and will offer him a new contract to keep him from the likes of Barcelona and Roma.
