Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen's move to
Tottenham Hotspur is still very much on despite the London
club's sacking of coach Harry Redknapp, the Belgian player's
Vertonghen's agent Mustapha Nakhli told reporters on Sunday
that "nothing has changed at all. He is coming to Tottenham for
the club and not for the manager.
"Managers come and go. Of course Jan is sorry that Harry
Redknapp is no longer there but he is going for the club.
"We have a good relationship with [Tottenham chairman]
Daniel Levy. He wants the deal to happen. I don't know when it
will happen but the deal is close, very close."
Belgian international Vertonghen has been keen on a move to
the Premier League and has already done much to win over Spurs
fans after choosing the club over local rivals Arsenal.
The 25-year-old Ajax captain is valued by the Dutch
champions at 15 million euros although Media
reports suggested Tottenham are hoping to persuade the Amsterdam
club to let him go for 12 million euros.
