Jan Vertonghen has seen contract talks with Tottenham hit a roadblock.
ESPN says the club have shown no willingness to agree to the Belgian's terms.
The defender is out of contract on June 30 and is yet to agree a new deal because Spurs are not prepared to meet his requests for a two-year extension on his £70,000-a-week contract.
FIFA have granted clubs the option to extend contracts for players whose deals are set to expire before the domestic seasons can be completed.
But Vertonghen, who returned to training with his team-mates this week, is yet to reach an agreement with Spurs.
