Ajax coach Frank De Boer is confident the sale of Jan Vertonghen to Tottenham will go through.

De Boer insists his side are close to reaching an agreement with Spurs for the transfer of the 25-year-old.

He said: "We're very close but if the deal isn't done, Jan must start his training next week with us.

"Eventually, I expect the deal will be done. I expect everything will be alright."
