Vertonghen: Set to leave Ajax this summer
VERTONGHEN: SPURS JUST AN OPTION
Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen admits he is far from certain to be joining Tottenham this summer.
Spurs revealed they had spoken to the Belgian's agent last week over a £7m move to White Hart Lane and Rafael van der Vaart talked up his chances of joining the club.
Vertonghen has been linked with a move to England for some time, previously indicating his interest in joining a 'magnificent club' like Arsenal.
But Vertonghen said: "I have a choice. There's something happening with Tottenham, but there are other clubs interested,"
"For me, it is important to get regular playing time. I also need a stable club."
He has also been linked with Barcelona, but admits playing in the Premier League appeals to him more.
"In England, there is a growing realisation that you can go far with good football. Arsenal started it and now you also see clubs like Newcastle United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur playing good football," he added.
