Ajax Captain Jan Vertonghen Will (finally) Join Tottenham Hotspur
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.
Talking about joining Spurs over a month ago.

Getting in our transfer targets early, LIKE A BOAS! Now we need a couple of strikers, a versatile winger, another keeper, and a replacement for Modric. No big deal!
