TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR CONFIRMED they had completed the signing of Jan Vertonghen from Dutch giants Ajax after the centre-half passed his medical today.
The 25-year-old, who captained the Amsterdam club, had agreed terms with the London side on Sunday.
Tottenham, in a statement on their Twitter feed, said Thursday: “We are delighted to announce that Jan-Vertonghen has completed his transfer from Ajax after passing his medical.”
Vertonghen will bolster a Spurs central defence weakened by the departures of long-serving former captain Ledley King and Ryan Nelsen. The 25-year-old is the second signing of Andre Villas-Boas’ short tenure as Spurs boss so far after Icelander Gylfi Sigurdsson agreed a move to White Hart Lane.
