​Tottenham boosted with early return of defender Vertonghen

Jan Vertonghen will be fit for Tottenham's opening game of the Premier League season, boss Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed.

The 29 year old Belgian defender injured his ankle ligaments during Euro 2016, and an early diagnosis suggested he would miss the start of the north Londoners' domestic campaign.

Pochettino told a pre-match press conference: "Good news, Jan Vertonghen is ready. Last week was perfect, he trained with the group."
