Tottenham signing Jan Vertonghen is anxiously waiting to make his Premier League debut.

Vertonghen last week completed his move from Ajax.

"I wish the Premier League started tomorrow," he said. "I have to wait a bit longer but I am looking forward to starting and playing for Spurs.

"I am very excited. It has been my favourite competition for so many years.

"All the Belgian players I play with in the national team are very positive about it and I am looking forward to playing against them too."
