The Premier League is set to resume later in June after the 2019/20 season was disrupted for over three months due to the global health crisis.
As per the plan, this campaign is expected to finish in July, meaning clubs will have to offer short extensions to players whose contracts run down this summer.
This includes Tottenham Hotspur defender Jan Vertonghen.
Het Nieuwsblad has a short update on the 33-year-old, given that his deal is set to expire at the end of this month.
To avoid any legal problems, the Belgian newspaper states the Premier League have asked each club to sort out the ‘future of each end-of-contract player’ before June 23rd.
Vertonghen, however, hopes to sign a contract elsewhere as he wants to avoid picking up an injury, which could possibly put off any potential suitors.
Therefore, according to the report, ‘it’s uncertain’ the former Ajax man will sign a short extension with Tottenham.
