Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Tottenham have confirmed Jan Vertonghen and Michel Vorm have left the club following the expiry of their contracts.

Vertonghen reflected on the end of his eight-year stay at Tottenham in an emotional message on Twitter, writing: “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.”

The 33-year-old, who joined Spurs in 2012, has previously suggested he would like to play in Italy or Spain and has said there have been “serious” offers for him.

His agent, Tom De Mul, revealed in February “there is a lot of interest” in the Belgian, who is now available to clubs on a free transfer.

A number of Tottenham’s squad posted farewell messages to Vertonghen and Vorm following the club’s 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday.

Vertonghen made over 300 appearances for Spurs since signing from Ajax, but was rarely used following the restart in June, starting just one of the club’s final nine matches.

Michel Vorm made 48 appearances for Tottenham during two spells at the club

In a statement, Tottenham said: “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.”

Vorm made 48 appearances for Tottenham during two spells, having first joined from Swansea in 2014. He re-joined in October as cover following an injury to Hugo Lloris.
