Ajax star Vertonghen remaining calm on Newcastle, Tottenham, Arsenal interest

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen says he is only focused on helping his current side win this season's title as his name continues to be linked with a summer departure.

The talented 24-year old Belgian centre-back has attracted plenty of interest from the likes of Newcastle United, Tottenham and Arsenal but he insists he is only thinking of winning the Dutch Eredivisie championship at the moment.

"Everybody knows that I'm open to a transfer, but you shouldn't want to leave at all costs," he told Algemeen Dagblad.

"I have a few things lined up at the moment, but it's difficult to say anything about that at the moment. I'll see what happens, if something becomes concrete.

"I'm focusing on putting in good performances and winning the league title for now."
