Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen says he's been welcomed warmly by his new teammates.

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."
