Tottenham's Vertonghen closing in on best form

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen believes he is close to finding his very best form.

The Belgium international is back in the Spurs line-up following a two-month injury absence and has helped keep two clean sheets in his three outings since returning.

Vertonghen insists he is feeling comfortable in north London and is getting back to his best form as he chases Champions League football with Spurs.

"It's only my second season and I'm happy I can play so many games in the Premier League for Tottenham," Vertonghen told the club's official website.

"I feel good where I am now and hopefully I'll keep going. I did everything to come back as quickly as possible.

"You have to be careful not to come back too early and I feel better and better, I thought I had a good game against Everton and that I'm getting back to my best level."
