Some Tottenham fans are not happy with news referring to the club’s centre-back Jan Vertonghen contract extension.
As the Guardian reports, Spurs are in negotiations with the Belgian over a new contract, as his contract is to expire next summer.
However, the 27-year-old has suffered a such a poor start to the season, but Mauricio Pochettino still believes in him and doesn’t want to lose the experienced defender.
Tottenham fans reaction on Twitter shows that they are less than pleased with the Vertonghen contract extension news.

Shouldn’t get one, he’s going down hill fast. Thanks a lot but time to go

Love him to pieces and everything he’s done for the club, but think it’s time for us and him to move on respectfully and with fond memories of one another #COYS

Should give Toby the new contract and sell Jan, he looks finished.

Can’t believe I’m saying this but I would stay away from this.

He was an excellent defender for many years. That is over now. He is too slow to keep up with the younger guys. He should be a late game sub now and that is all. No contract extension.
