Tottenham are to hand Jan Vertonghen a new deal in hope of warding off interest from the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Belgium international has stated in recent weeks that he would look to leave White Hart Lane if they failed to finish inside the top four.

Tottenham are currently six points off an automatic Champions League spot so look destined to again miss out on a place in Europe's prestigious competition.

However the north London outfit are looking to keep Vertonghen away from the clutches of Europe's top teams by offering the 26-year-old a significant pay rise.

The former Ajax defender, who is currently earning £40,000-a-week, knows he could double his salary if he was to move to either Barcelona or Manchester United.

David Moyes is on the lookout for a central defender to replace the outgoing Nemanja Vidic and has identified Vertonghen as the man to fill the void left by the Serbian defender.

Barcelona will also strengthen their defence in the summer as Carles Puyol has struggled with injury over the past couple of seasons.
