Vertonghen favours Spurs move

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has confirmed that he is interested in moving to Tottenham and hopes that a deal can be arranged as soon as possible, The Daily Mail reports.

The Belgian international has been a long-term target of Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, but with Tottenham narrowly missing out on Champions League football, Vertonghen may have been interested in a switch to North London rivals Arsenal. The 25 year old has dismissed any rumours of an Arsenal move and has urged his Ajax bosses to reach an agreement with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, so a deal can be completed.

Redknapp is desperate to strengthen his defence and sees Vertonghen as the ideal candidate withLevy travelling to Amsterdam on Monday to meet club officials. The two parties were unable to agree a fee, but Vertonghen has urged the two parties not to give up. The Ajax captain signed off with the Amsterdam side on a high, winning the Eredivisie title, and now wants a new challenge in England.

Vertonghen said: “I am aware of Arsenal’s interest, but that is not an option I am thinking about. I will wait for Tottenham and Ajax to sort things out and what happened in Munich makes no difference. I hope there will be a decision by the end of next week.”
