Jan Vertonghen says it is “a sad day for many reasons” as he confirmed the end of his eight-year stay at Tottenham in an emotional message.
The defender, who is leaving the club following the expiry of his contract, posted 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.
“Thank you for all the support over the years. You’ve been amazing. We had many unbelievable memories but for now, it’s goodbye.”
