Vertonghen concentrates on Ajax

Ajax captain Jan Vertonghen insists he will be entirely focused on his current club until a long-running transfer saga with Tottenham is resolved.

• Vertonghen talks continue

Vertonghen, 25, has reported for pre-season training with the Eredivise champions this week, despite a move to Spurs reportedly close to completion.

Although unlikely to feature when Ajax's season kicks off on August 8, the Belgium international insists he is solely focused on pre-season preparations.

Vertonghen told the club's official website: "Of course it goes through my head that there is still no clarity about my future. It is difficult and I can't say I don't think about it but that's how it is and I have to adapt.

"For now I play for Ajax and I will always give 100% for them. I am a professional athlete and despite all the issues for me it is simply the beginning of a new season. And that, for me, starts at Ajax.

"It is obviously impossible to say how long these things take but well before August 31 (the closing of the transfer window) there must be clarity. Until then I will just focus on Ajax."
