Either way, the 32-year-old's time at Tottenham appears to be short and there has been little movement on him agreeing a contract extension at the club.

No extension has been agreed as yet, meaning that Vertonghen continues to head towards free agency.

This term, he has made 17 league appearances for Inter, who were in third place in the Serie A table before Italian football was suspended amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Vertonghen is now mulling over whether to prolong his association with Tottenham or take on a new challenge.

"I'm good. From a rehab point of view and personal point of view, I'm doing really well", Kane told the club's website.

"I'm not too far away, I'd normally hope to be back with the team in two or three weeks".

'I have to start thinking about where I still want to live, what language I want to learn, what culture I still want to live in.

Spurs are eager to retain the services of an experienced performer, and Vertonghen's agent has suggested that an agreement could be reached that suits all parties at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The former Ajax defender's agent also hinted that his client may stay in north London after all, telling Belgian outlet HLN in February that Vertonghen is "super happy" at his current club.

"He is still very committed".

Tottenham players are now training from home, but Kane can still use the club's Enfield base for rehabilitation work and fitness testing. There is a connection.

Vertonghen is now free to speak to any non-English clubs that are interested in his services and it has been rumoured Inter Milan have made contact, with the former Ajax man indicating he has other "options" on the table, besides Tottenham. "The door's still open".
