Jan Vertonghen reportedly wants to leave in January

Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen is reportedly eyeing a move away in January.

There was a lot of speculation surrounding the future of Jan Vertonghen at Tottenham Hotspur over the summer and the arrival of manager Mauricio Pochettino has done little to allay the uncertainty.

Vertonghen has been in and out of the Tottenham starting lineup so far and it is believed that Pochettino has not been left convinced by the defender’s performances.

Due to the lack of regular football, even Vertonghen is said to be unhappy and the Daily Mirror have claimed that Manchester United are keen on making a swoop for the Belgian international during the January transfer window.

Vertonghen is most certainly a quality centre-back and it will be a huge loss for Spurs if he decides to leave in January.
