Former Spurs midfielder Jermain Jenas has urged Manchester United to sign a left-footed ball-playing defender.

Jenas has identified Jan Vertonghen who is now a free agent after leaving Spurs as the ideal defensive partner for Harry Maguire.

Speaking to BBC 5 Live Sport about why recently released defender Jan Vertonghen can be ideal for Harry Maguire at Man United, Jermain Jenas explained: “I keep touting him around everywhere but I’m sorry, Jan Vertonghen on a free is the best free transfer centre half out there.

“If you can get Harry Maguire back on the right side and get an actual ball-playing centre-half as a left-sider, that little dynamic may change things for them as well and he’s free.

“They’ll know what they’re doing, they’ll have a plan but defensively they’re miles off it.I know how good he is. It baffles me when I see him in the stand every week because I know how good he this player is. I’ve played with him, I’ve watched him and on a free transfer, it just makes sense.”

Do you think the club should sign Jan Vertonghen?
