Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has revealed he is close to joining Tottenham and believes a deal could be finalised in the next "couple of weeks or maybe days".
The Belgium international has been the subject of speculation linking him with a move to the Barclays Premier League, with Arsenal and Spurs both reportedly interested. Vertonghen has previously stated his preference to join Tottenham and the defender says that move now looks close to completion.
Asked if he knew what club he wanted to join, he said: "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."
