Tottenham signing Jan Vertonghen says they're capable of challenging for the title this season.

Vertonghen last week completed his move from Ajax.

"I am delighted to be here," he told Spurs TV. "Over the last years Spurs have become a very big club in England.

"They finished in the top four a few times and for me it was one of the best clubs in the Premier League and that is one of the reasons I wanted to come here.

"There is a lot of quality and I think everybody wants to make a good season.

"Last year in the first six or seven months, they were up there for the title, the championship.

"After that it was not that well, but this year I think we will compete a few more months longer."
