Former Southampton midfielder Carlton Palmer does not think Jannik Vestergaard leaving St. Mary’s this summer is guaranteed and believes the club will be doing everything in their power to tie him down to a new contract.
Speaking exclusively to TIF about Vestergaard’s situation, Palmer said:
“Surely they’ll be sitting down and talking about an extension to his contract. Somebody who’s played 30 games for you in the Premier League season, obviously he’s warranting a new contract, for sure. I think he’ll be there next season.”
Vestergaard has also been linked with a move to Tottenham. However, with reports suggesting that Jose Mourinho was the one pushing for the signing, the north London club’s interest has probably cooled.
It will now be interesting to see what other teams target the 28-year-old this summer, if any at all.
