Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen admits he's keen to complete a move to Tottenham.

The two clubs are now in talks for the Belgium international.

Vertonghen has just one year left on his current deal and appears keen on a switch to the north London club.

The 25-year-old told De Telegraaf newspaper: "The board is asking a fair amount for a player who is only contracted for another year. I trust that Ajax and Spurs can turn water into wine and sort it out soon."

Vertonghen believes he would fit in nicely at Tottenham.

"Tottenham is a fantastic football club. Ajax was the perfect club for me, but Spurs will be very close in nearing that already. They buy young, eager and offensive-minded players."
