Jan Vertonghen can play until he is 40, says Mauricio Pochettino

Daniel Levy, the chairman, is refusing to sanction such an outlay on a player who turns 29 next week.

And in any case, Tottenham have been doing well without the former Atletico Madrid man, who has played only a couple of FA Cup ties since suffering a hamstring injury helping his side to a famous victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League in early November.

Spurs can trigger a 12-month option next summer but that clause also allows Alderweireld to leave for £25.4 million, well below his market value.

It would further cement the image of Tottenham as a "nearly club", one happy to cash in on their best players, a team that are so close to success, yet always just miss out.

"Now, though, he is one of the important players in the side". In my opinion, he's one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League and in Europe.

Billy Graham's early ministry took hold in Chicago area
Graham later apologised for these comments, which he said he did not remember having made. Real answer: Billy Graham + the queen appears to have a pretty firm basis in fact.

'If the club believe that he needs to be rewarded I think then he is one of the players of course, ' he said.

'He's an athlete. It's unbelievable and it's only up to him to play until he is 40-year-old because his condition is genetic.

Pochettino does, however, recall a time when Vertonghen didn't appear to have the right mentality to become Tottenham's leading defender.

And Spurs boss Pochettino believes Vertonghen has come a long way since being slated for his poor body language during a 4-0 defeat by Liverpool in March 2014 - shortly before the Argentine took over as manager. "He was slouched in the tunnel". I remember saying, 'Jan, come...

'"You are going into a battle, no?" You can not show this body language - you are a warrior!' It is hard after showing that lack of energy to go out and take part in a battle. He deserves to be praised because we've worked a lot together to reach the level he's at today. "He is so strong, he looks like a 20-year-old because when he runs he is fast, he is like my new dog - a Rhodesian Ridgeback!"
