Tottenham transfer news: Dutch side they are close to selling Belgian to Spurs

Ajax say they are close to completing the sale of Jan Vertonghen to Tottenham.

The Belgian has been strongly linked with a move to White Hart Lane and the deal was expected to be completed some time ago.

However the two clubs struggled to agree a feee for the defender, whose contract expires at the end of the 2012-13 campaign.

It is now thought Vertonghen and Ajax are now in talks with the Dutch side allegedly owing the 25-year-old money.

“We all hoped for a rapid agreement between Tottenham Hotspur and Ajax and Spurs and Jan Vertonghen,” Ajax financial director Jeroen Slop told De Telegraaf.

“It’s in its final stage, but in our opinion there is still no concrete news.”

The player’s agent Mustapha Nakhli has called on Ajax to make the deal happen.

“Jan Vertonghen has always stood by Ajax, and he expects that the club does the same,” Nakhli also toldDe Telegraaf.
