United eye Jan transfer of unsettled Jan Vertonghen



United eye Jan transfer of unsettled Jan Vertonghen
Jan Vertonghen has been repeatedly reported to be unsettled at White Hart Lane and his Tottenham's future is in even more doubt now with United weighing up a January move for the Belgian. The centre-back's unhappiness is well known inside the club with him being deployed at left-back under Tim Sherwood last season and since the arrival of new manager Mauricio Pochettino, Younes Kaboul was chosen rather than him to be the club's captain. Since then, Vertonghen has started only 6 of 11 league matches and he was axed in favour of Federico Fazio for the
Stoke's 1-2 defeat with Pochettino later revealed that he's unimpressed by Vertonghen's attitude. The Belgian is widely regarded as Spurs' best centre-half but his career at north London has always been rocky after his arrival from Ajax in 2012. Although he has 3 and a half years left on his deal and will not officially demand a transfer with chairman Daniel Levy also unlikely to sell the player for less than £18m, Louis van Gaal is linked to be keen admirer of the player with the 63-year-old ensures that his club find the right player, even if they need to cough up more.
