Vertonghen has again warned Andre Villas-Boas that he is not happy playing out of position and has urged the Tottenham manager to step up his search for a new left back.
"We have had some injuries on the left of defence at Tottenham this season, and it has often been down to me to fill the gap," he said, ahead of Belgium's game with Japan.
"Tottenham pay my wages, so I have to accept it, but it doesn't suit me, and the club know how much I want to play centre-half.
"I think I have done enough to deserve a place there now, ideally for every game."
