Spurs ace snubs Gunners
Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen has confirmed he turned down Arsenal in favour of a move to White Hart Lane because it 'felt right'.
Both clubs were battling it out for the 25-year-old's services during the summer and at one point it was reported that the Gunners had won the race for his signature.
However after speaking with Spurs chairman Daniel Levi and Rafael Van der Vaart before he left for Germany, the central defender opted to move to White Hart Lane.
It remains to be seen whether it was the right decision but the player says he has no regrets.
"They gave me a good feeling," the Belgium international revealed. "The chairman, Daniel Levy, was good and I talked with Rafael van der Vaart.
"They invited me here and gave me the best feeling in the world. From that moment on I said to myself, 'I want to play here'.
"I know Arsenal were interested but I had already made the decision in my head that I wanted to play here. I'm not one to switch all the time, I make my decision and then I go for it.
"I wanted to play for Spurs. It's as simple as that."
