The Belgian arrived last month from Ajax.
"Everybody is very nice and has been very helpful. With Rafa I have somebody who will teach me how to get along with the guys, the English guys, the French guys, cause I speak French too. I’ve had a very good first few weeks, and I’m very happy to be with Tottenham," said Vertonghen.
"I knew before I came there would be a lot of competition, but I am not afraid for any competition. This is a big club and in every big club there will be competition between everybody. There are a lot of good center backs but the best will play."
