Vertonghen Drops Spurs Hint

Ajax defender reveals that deal is close

Much coveted defender Jan Vertonghen has dropped a strong hint to where his future may lie, with the Ajax star suggesting that he wishes to join Tottenham in the summer.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with Eridivisie Player of the Year, but the 25-year-old seems now to be headed to White Hart Lane instead. Vertonghen said that Tottenham is a ‘fantastic, traditional club’ who ‘buy young, eager and offensive-minded players’.

With the Spurs squad lacking any quality at centre back (other than the crocked Ledley King), Vertonghen seems to be almost the perfect signing and would be a small consolation for Harry Redknapp following his disappointment at not being offered the England management position.
