thumbnail Hello,

The Belgium international reportedly got on poorly with Tim Sherwood but says that he fully intends to see out the two remaining years of his contract

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen insists that he is happy and wants to remain at White Hart Lane regardless of the identity of the club's next coach.

The Belgium international had been linked with a move away from north London since reports emerged that he did not want to play under Tim Sherwood.

But, with Sherwood having been sacked, Vertonghen has underlined his desire to stay at Spurs, where he could potentially be managed by his former Ajax boss, Frank de Boer, next season.

"I've got a couple more years at Tottenham and I'm happy and I want to stay there so it doesn't matter who the manager will be," the defender told Sky Sports.

"[De Boer] is a good manager but there are other good managers as well so, again, the chairman will make a good decision."

The 27-year-old is set to participate in his first World Cup in Brazil this summer but is not treating the tournament as an opportunity to attract potential suitors.

"I don't think that is one for us because we all play for nice teams already and we just want to do something nice for Belgium, not for ourselves," he added.
