De Boer: Vertonghen deal nearly done

Ajax manager Frank de Boer has left Tottenham Hotspur target Jan Vertonghen out of his squad for a pre-season fixture because "his head is in London".

• Vertonghen hopes to end impasse

Vertonghen has been linked with a transfer to White Hart Lane all summer, and it seems the deal is now on the verge of completion.

The switch has been held up of late, with the Belgium international in dispute with Ajax over receiving a cut of the transfer fee.

Vertonghen's agent said recently he was aiming to enter talks with Ajax in a bid to end the impasse - and it seems he has pushed the saga towards a resolution, with De Boer omitting Vertonghen from the exhibition contest against FC Emmen.

"Jan has his head in London, so we sent him home," De Boer told Telesport. "He is only waiting on a few minor details before he gets the green light."

Spurs are expected to pay £9 million to bring the centre-back to White Hart Lane, where he will link up with new boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Vertonghen would join Gylfi Sigurdsson in boosting the ranks of the Spurs boss.
