Vertonghen: I spoke with Van der Vaart about Spurs move

Tottenham signing Jan Vertonghen is delighted to have completed his protracted move from Ajax.

Spurs midfielder Rafael van der Vaart began his career with the Dutch club and Vertonghen revealed he spoke to him about moving to London.

"He left when I came to Ajax but I met him a few times and spoke with him about Spurs," the Belgium international said.

"He was very positive, gave me a great feeling about the club and was very positive about the club, about the players and the Premier League. I hope these stories are true."
