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.

 


Welcome to Tottenham, Jan.


We're up all night to get lucky

What a backline we have now that it's official.

BAE - Verts - Kaboul - Walker

Seems like such a quality guy too, can't wait to see him play.

What everyone has been calling him throughout the ITK for the deal. It's caught on for me.

I think Tottenham have one of the best back lines in the league now, if it wasn't confirmed already, this guy seems a rock. Him and Kaboul alongside, damn, will be hard to get by. Both are only mid 20's too so not possibly at their best. Any news on the fee? Heard

Think it was 9 potentially rising to 12m. Peanuts for a guy like him. It'd be interesting to see if AVB will allow him to run out of defense with the ball like he did for Ajax. It's one of his best attributes and if he can adapt it to the English game, he's going to be a monster signing.

I have a good feeling over Jan. Seems to be exactly the kind of player we need at the back, both ability wise as well as personality wise.

What language does Jan Vertonghen speak?

He's from Flanders, so I'm guessing Dutch, but would he speak French also?

Dutch, French and English. He communicates with Gallas in French.

Villas-Boas, though, is confident there is a new king in town:

From what I read he was about to cry.
