Tottenham veteran defender Jan Vertonghen is reportedly in talks with Italian side Roma regarding a transfer. Italian tabloid II Messaggero reports that the defender has been offered a two-year deal by Roma with an option for an extension.
The Belgium international has endured an average season with injuries and loss of form leading to him playing a reduced role at the club. With his contract set to expire in the summer Spurs have played little role in renewing his contract.
It is understood that the club are satisfied with their current options and the defender is likely to leave in the summer. Vertonghen has been one of the best defenders in the EPL since moving eight seasons ago.
A move to Roma would be a good one for the Belgium ace as he looks to get much needed first-team opportunities. There are reports that other clubs could be interested in his services. At the moment Roma appears to be the likely destination for the sturdy defender.
