Tottenham took another step towards signing Ajax captain Jan Vertonghen after he watched Sunday's 2-0 Premier League victory over Fulham, according to the Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old defender has been the subject of interest from a host of English clubs, as he enters the final 12 months of his contract in Holland, but now looks set for a move to north London.

The Belgian international and his agent, Nakhli Mustapha, were guests at White Hart Lane at the weekend as Spurs officials planned informal talks with Vertonghen about a prospective move.

Ajax boss Frank De Boer gave his blessing to the trip, but says that his current skipper will not leave for less than his £9million valuation.

With Harry Redknapp reportedly ready to pay only £7million, the two parties are some way off agreeing terms and will need to thrash those out during the transfer window, as Tottenham look to strengthen their squad again over the summer.
