Jan Vertonghen is set to join Benfica on a three-year deal after leaving Tottenham.
The 33-year-old defender will undergo a medical on Thursday and Friday following his Spurs exit at the end of his contract last month.
Vertonghen played over 300 times for Tottenham after signing from Ajax in 2012. He signed a short-term contract extension to allow him to complete the 2019/20 Premier League season, but rarely featured following the restart as Spurs finished sixth.
After leaving the north London club last month, Vertonghen wrote 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 and 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.”
