Tottenham defender Vertonghen excited about Old Trafford return

Tottenham new boy Jan Vertonghen admits he is looking forward to again playing at Old Trafford.

The Spurs defender played against Manchester United at the 'Theatre of Dreams' last season and is eagerly anticipating heading back there when the Londoners head north on Saturday.

"I played at Old Trafford last year with Ajax and it's an amazing atmosphere," Vertonghen told London 24.

"I'm looking forward to my first game with Tottenham against Man United, and I think we're strong enough to do some good things there.

"We've played well away from home, especially against Reading. We have a lot of confidence, especially after getting our first home win (over QPR yesterday)."
