The transfer of Belgium
international centreback Jan Vertonghen from Ajax Amsterdam to
Tottenham Hotspur has been completed subject to a medical, the
two clubs jointly announced on Sunday.
Ajax said in a statement that the transfer fee included
bonuses with a maximum of 12.0 million euros for the 25-year-old who skippered Ajax to their second
successive Dutch League title last season.
"We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement
with Ajax for the transfer of Jan Vertonghen, subject to a
medical," Tottenham said.
Vertonghen becomes the second major signing at Spurs since
Andre Villas Boas was named manager last week, following the
signing of Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson from Hoffenheim
Vertonghen was named as the Dutch League's Player of the
Year as well as Ajax's Player of the Year last season. He made
220 appearances for Ajax and scored 28 goals for them after
making his debut in 2006.
