UPDATE: Jan Vertonghen's press conference quotes about potentially joining Tottenham

UPDATE No. 2: More quotes from Jan Vertonghen on Tottenham

WOOT. Ajax and Belgium defender Jan Vertonghen, who we've been trying to sign since forever, is going to sign for Tottenham Hotspur. Daniel Levy's been doing his negotiating thang for a while and it looks like he's finally wrapped up the signing. Vertonghen reportedly announced in a press conference that he will be joining Tottenham shortly. Sky and ESPN are both running with it.

This is, quite obviously, a pretty freaking awesome development. I'll try to track down the press conference in question and the quotes from it. I assume that the major media outlets in attendance will actually have stories up with quotes from Verthongen shortly. Most likely, we'll hear the story in Dutch first.

Everybody go celebrate. I command you.

EDIT: LOL I hate the internet you guys
