JAN VERTONGHEN is set to leave Tottenham for free this summer, according to reports.The centre-back’s contract expires in North London at the end of the season.2 Tottenham are making plans for the 2020/21 season without Jan Vertonghen as they expect the Belgian to leaveCredit: News Group Newspapers LtdAnd according to Football Insider, the Belgian has been unable to successfully negotiate a new deal.Spurs are understood to have offered a one-year extension on reduced terms.But Vertonghen, who turns 33 in April, wants at least another two years.And so, unlike his international team-mate Toby Alderweireld, the long-serving defender is on course to leave White Hart Lane.As a result, Jose Mourinho and his coaching staff are making plans for the 2020/21 season without Vertonghen.’STILL HUNGRY’Speaking in February, his agent Tom De Mul admitted the door was still open for his client to stay in North London but it looks increasingly unlikely.De Mul told HLM: “We currently have no agreement [with Tottenham], but I do not rule anything out.”We consider everything. There is a lot of interest for Jan, certainly as a free agent, but Tottenham also remains an interesting option for us. The door is still open.”He still wants to get good results with Spurs after a difficult start. He wants to qualify for the Europa League or Champions League.”He is 32, but he is still so ambitious. He is focused. The Euros, for example, are super important to him.”That’s the beauty of him. He wants to play at the highest level in a top competition for as long as possible. He is still very hungry.”Latest transfer newsLive Blogblues newsChelsea news LIVE – Latest updates from Stamford BridgeLive Blogunited newsMan Utd news LIVE – Latest updates from Old TraffordLive BlogGunners newsArsenal news LIVE – Latest updates from the EmiratesGossipGOING DUTCHChelsea ‘to grab Mbuyamba on free deal’ with defender set to leave BarcelonaDEPAY CHARTMan Utd flop Memphis used computer data and analytics to quit Old TraffordLive BlogBLUES NEWSChelsea news LIVE: Latest updates and transfer gossip from Stamford BridgeGossipFIT IN HIS BELEArsenal turn attention to Lyon striker Dembele as Lacazette replacementGossipGUNNER MAKE A MOVEArsenal weighing up transfer move for Barcelona star RafinhaBoth Ajax – from whom Spurs signed Vertonghen in 2012 – and Inter Milan showed interest in the Belgium international in January.But they were put off by Tottenham’s asking price of £12m, especially knowing that he would get released in the summer.Despite falling behind first-choice centre-back pairing Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez, Vertonghen has made 26 appearances for Spurs this season, often filling in at left-back.2Jan Vertonghen speaks of his shock after armed burglars terrorised his family while he was on Champions League duty
It was a day of upsets and twists as the Pee Wee Under -11 football action continued.The day’s 16-match schedule featured players showing off the best of their skills to lead their teams to victory.In the first encounter of the day, Jerimiah Parks led Colaaco to their second win after hitting a much needed penalty on target against F.E. Pollard Primary.Their matchup was followed by a heated encounter between Mocha Arcadia and Tucville Primary, who were battling for the top spot in Group ‘D’. Mocha, underdogs of the day, hindered the usually powerful Tucville team from equalising. Emanuel Tinch’s one was not enough to match Mathew Murray’s two, which saw the encounter ending 2-1 in Mocha’s favour.Another Group ‘D’ encounter saw Den Amstel and J.E. Burnham each receiving a chance to collect some points after suffering losses to the two more aggressive teams in the group. Sahle Butts was the golden boy for J.E. Burnham, scoring two goals, trumping Keshawn Humphrey’s one for Den Amstel.St. Pius continued in fine form, this time overcoming Victoria 5-1. Chance Niles’s hat-trick and two from Kaden Wellington made up St. Pius’s tally, as Victoria could one reply with one. This means that St. Pius will continue to hold their place at the top of Group ‘C’.Marian Academy was a team to watch, as they played an impressive defensive game to ensure that their lone goal from Louis Da Silva was enough to win them the encounter against Smiths Memorial.Timehri Primary was also in the winning circle with a similar 1-0 win over Sophia. Their lone goal came off the boots of Jason Williams.North Georgetown Primary cemented their spot at the top of Group ‘H’ after a 2-1 victory over Soesdyke. Their success can be attributed to Cristino Rodiou and Martha Chance, who scored one goal each.Plaisance was another team which continued in their victorious habits, as they defeated Clonbrook 2-0 owing to goals from Jerimiah Marks and Ezra Clarks.Try as they might, Beterverwagting were no match for Golden Grove. With one goal from Jaden Harris, it was not enough to measure up to Golden Grove’s four in the form of Troy Andrews’s one and Bryan Wharton’s hat trick.Mae’s Primary proved to be strong contenders after another massive win. This time they registered a 4-0 win against Ann’s Grove. Mike Holder’s double and one a piece from Gamaliel Phillips and Davill Charles contributed to Mae’s tally.Continuing on a winning streak, St. Agnes shaved past St. Ambrose with a 1-0 win. Their lone goal this week came from consistent striker Justin Alcindor.A nil-all draw saw St Margaret’s sharing points with Goed Fortuin, while Enterprise were awarded a walkover in their encounter against Redeemer.Also in walkovers, the reigning champions enjoyed a walkover against St Stephen’s, South Ruimveldt got a walkover against Grove, and La Parfait Harmonie also got a walkover when Craig Primary failed to show.
