Vertonghen will be free to speak to foreign clubs in January and there has reportedly been interest from Roma and Bayer Leverkusen.

Formal discussions have yet to take place between chairman Daniel Levy and the centre-back.

Vertonghen was back on the bench for Tuesday night’s Champions League win over Olympiacos after missing the victory over West Ham through injury.

He has made 294 appearances for Spurs since joining from Ajax in the summer of 2012.

Vertonghen is one of three senior players, alongside Toby Alderweireld and Christian Eriksen, whose deals are set to expire next year.
