Redknapp hopeful over Vertonghen deal

Published Add your comment

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is hopeful a deal will be completed for Ajax captain Jan Vertonghen but says nothing has been finalised yet.

The 25-year-old defender showed his versatility - one of the attributes which has impressed Redknapp - with a solid display at left-back for Belgium in Saturday's 1-0 friendly defeat against England at Wembley.

Quoted in The Sun on Sunday, the Spurs boss said: "Jan is a terrific passer and versatile, too. He can play at the heart of defence but also plays very comfortable at left-back. I hope a deal is done but I don't think it's quite finished yet."
