Spurs move close, says Vertonghen
Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has revealed that he could complete a move to Tottenham within the next few days.
The 25-year-old has been continually linked with a move to the Premier League after catching the eye with his performances in the Eredivisie this season.
Spurs have long been the favourites for his signature after the player said they were his preferred destination, though he also admitted he couldn't rule out the possibility of joining another English club.
But after speaking before Belgium's match against England, Verthongen told a press conference that a move to White hart Lane is close to being finalised.
He said: "I would like to play in the Premier League. I am not in contact every day but I think it could be very close now, maybe a couple of weeks or maybe days, I probably know which team I will be going to, yes. I know where I want to go and I think it is clear to everybody."
When probed as to whether that club is Tottenham, he nodded and said: "Yes."
