The Belgium international is upset with Ajax appearing to price him out of a switch.
"This is very wrong. I thought it would come around much earlier. I was counting on it. Tottenham was fast, serious and concrete," lamented Vertonghen.
"Look, Ajax wants the best for themselves, and I'm going to look after myself, that is this world. But I was always neat and fairly loyal to the club, the fans. I had not expected that it would last so long."
