Vertonghen likely to reject Newcastle for Arsenal or Tottenham

Newcastle United face a battle to convince Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen about a move to the Northeast.

Toon boss Alan Pardew made a personal check on Vertonghen last weekend and has hopes of signing the Belgium international.

De Telegraaf says Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham have also registered their interest with Ajax.

And for his part, Vertonghen favours a move to London over the north this summer.
