Spurs agree Vertonghen deal

Tottenham Hotspur have finally been given the green light to sign Jan Vertonghen from Ajax and the Belgian is ready for the challenge of the Premier League.

• Live Transfer blog
• Vertonghen hopes to end impasse

Vertonghen, 25, had been at loggerheads with his club over a cut of the transfer fee he was due under the terms of his contract. But after weeks of wrangling the matter has finally been settled and the defender is now able to move to England.

A statement on Spurs' official website read: "We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Jan Vertonghen, subject to a medical.

"The 2011-12 campaign was the Belgium international's most successful season to date - being named Ajax captain at the start and going on to lead the Dutch side to their second straight league title.

"The centre back's impressive performances did not go unnoticed as he was named Eredivisie Player of the Year as well as Ajax's Player of the Year in a season that saw him score 10 times in 37 appearances. In total, Jan made 220 appearances and scored 28 goals for Ajax since making his debut for them in 2006."

After proving his class in the Dutch Eredivisie, Vertonghen is determined to make the step up in the Premier League.

"I'm glad I'm a Tottenham player right now and I'm looking forward to playing for the club," he told Sky Sports News.

"I am 25 years old now and I feel ready to play in the Premier League. I have heard a lot of good stories from my Belgium team-mates. I think I'm ready.

"I heard that Harry Redknapp really wanted me to play for Tottenham, but now it's Andre Villas-Boas. To me, that doesn't matter. I just want to play for the club and I hope I can please the fans at the club."

On Saturday, Ajax manager Frank de Boer left Vertonghen out of his squad for a pre-season fixture against FC Emmen because "his head is in London".

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 joins Gylfi Sigurdsson in boosting the ranks at Spurs.

"I'm 25 years old and I feel ready to play in the Premier League. I've heard a lot of good stories from my Belgium team-mates, so I think I'm ready for the club," Vertonghen said. "They have a lot of good players and I hope the most important players will stay, but that's my opinion, I'm not one of the directors. I hope the players will stay and we have a good team next season."
