Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen open to Ajax return

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen has left the door open to a return to Ajax.

The Belgium international left Ajax for Spurs over eight years ago.

"It is often asked if it could happen. It depends on so many factors," he told Ziggo Sports.

"Fitness-wise, what do I want, what does the club want with me ... But it will always be an option."

Dutch hero Wim Kieft says: "Those are gains for Dutch football. Jan has to decide for himself, but I would applaud it."
