Ajax centre-back Joel Veltman is a target for Tottenham.

The Mirror says the talented 22-year-old, given his first international cap by the Holland coach, has also attracted the attention of Chelsea and Manchester United.

But Louis van Gaal is keen on Veltman if he gets the Spurs job.

Van Gaal - among several names being considered for the Spurs job - has the edge having worked with the player and is now set to take him to the World Cup.

Ajax Director Marc Overmars has already vowed to fight to hold on to Veltman during this summer's transfer window.
