​Vertonghen joins Alli in calls for Tottenham unity: 'We must stick together'

Following Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen has become the latest Tottenham player to urge the club to keep the squad together over the summer.

After a successful domestic season, a number of Spurs players have been linked with moves to some of the biggest clubs in the continent.

However, the Belgian says that Spurs have a quality team and if they can stick together, they can achieve something special in the coming years.

Vertonghen is quoted by the Daily Mail: "We have a great team now and we know that. The gaffer knows it, the chairman knows it. I used to play in a great Ajax team and we spoke about keeping the lads together, our dreams were about making finals and winning trophies.

"But it's impossible for a lower team that doesn't have the financial ability to do that. Tottenham does and everyone wants to be part of this team and you can see the way we play and the way we enjoy playing together, winning together.

"I don't think you can find it anywhere else. Guys like Dele [Alli], like 'H' [Harry Kane], they know it too. They cherish that."
