Spurs get their Jan – Vertonghen deal agreed

ANDRE Villas-Boas’s dealings at Spurs have continued today, with the new boss bringing in Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen.
In a statement today, the club said: “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.”
Great signing for Spurs, who look a team with a vision at the moment – as well as Gylffi Siggurdsson’s signing, it’s believed Man City’s previous loanee Emmanuel Adebayor has also been secured for around £5.5m.
