Tottenham are pushing to land Ajax captain Jan Vertonghen.

The People says Harry Redknapp is keen on the 24-year-old Belgian international, who doubles as a defensive midfielder.

He has been a target for both Arsenal and Newcastle United, but with Ledley King's contract running out in the summer and the 31-year-old defender showing no signs of signing a new one the £10million-rated left-footer is now Tottenham's No.1 target.
