Jan Vertonghen's agent insists his client's move to Tottenham is still on despite the sacking of Harry Redknapp.
Spurs began talks with Ajax over the transfer of Vertonghen some weeks ago, but the two sides are still reported to be some way apart on their valuation of the 25-year-old defender.
This week's sacking of Redknapp, who wanted to sign the player in January, raised doubts over whether the deal would go ahead, but Vertonghen's agent Mustapha Nakhli insists the move is "very close". "Nothing has changed at all. He is coming to Tottenham for the club and not for the manager," Nakhli told Press Association Sport.
