We're not sure just how badly Tottenham Hotspur want Jan Vertonghen, but it is looking pretty clear that the Belgian wants wants to play for Spurs. Representatives from Spurs were in Amsterdam to see the Ajax central defender play Manchester United in the Europa League then Harry Redknapp himself was at Old Trafford to see the return leg. Now, Vertonghen has basically told Spurs, "come and get me."
"This is a fantastic club. You can see how well they do this season," Vertonghen told the Express. "They are in the top three in England and that is where I want to play."
A 24-year-old player that is starring not just in the Eredivisie, but for Belgium too, wants to play for Spurs? That player also plays center defense, where Tottenham are nearing on desperate for some youth and a leading man? Make. That. Deal. Happen.
I will be driving the Jan Vertonghen to Tottenham bus until the Belgian is wearing white so get used to this and if you're smart, hop on.
