Ajax defender Vertonghen goes legal to get Spurs switch

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has been forced to 'lawyer up' to get his move to Tottenham.

The Sunday Mirror says Vertonghen has ­appointed a top lawyer to help clinch his move to ­Tottenham.

The 26-year-old Belgium international has been locked in a contract ­wrangle with Ajax.

Vertonghen claims he should pocket about £1.5million from the £9m fee Spurs have agreed with the Dutch club.

Once that part of the deal is ratified Vertonghen, 25, will sign a four year ­contract with a one-year option at White Hart Lane.
