Tottenham pair Vertonghen, Vorm leave the club

Tottenham confirmed Monday that Jan Vertonghen and Michel Vorm are to leave the club after their contracts expire at the end of July.

Defender Vertonghen joined Spurs from Ajax in 2012 and made 315 appearances.

“Belgium’s all-time record holder for the highest number of senior international appearances with 118 caps to his name, we thank Jan for his tremendous service and wish him every success in the future. He will always be a valued member of the Spurs family,” Spurs said in a statement.

Vertonghen said on Twitter.: “So my time at the club comes to an end. A sad day for many reasons. I will miss the friends I’ve made here, the staff that make the club run, playing at the amazing new stadium & of course you fans.”

Goalkeeper Vorm enjoyed two spells at Spurs after initially signing from Swansea in 2014.

“The Dutch international made 48 appearances in all competitions across his two stints with us,” Tottenham said.

“We wish him well for the future and, like Jan, he will always be welcome at Tottenham Hotspur.
