Tottenham have finally agreed a deal with Ajax to sign defender Jan Vertonghen, the club have confirmed today.
The north Londoners have been in negotiations with the Dutch champions for weeks but announced on tottenhamhotspur.com today that they have finally struck a deal that will see the Belgian stopper move to White Hart Lane this summer, subject to a medical.
With only one year remaining on his contract, Vertonghen declared his intention to leave Ajax this summer after six hugely successful years with the Dutch side. The 25-year-old was linked with several clubs throughout Europe but quickly revealed he had his heart set on a move to Tottenham, and it seems he has now got his wish.
Vertonghen was named Ajax captain for the 2011/12 season and led the club to a second successive league title. The defender was named Eredivise Player of the Year as well as Ajax’s Player of the Year after an impressive season that saw him score 10 times in 37 games.
Vertonghen becomes new Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas’ second signing of the summer after the capture of Gylfi Sigurdsson.
