Spurs poised to sign Jan Vertonghen

London football club Tottenham Hotspur is poised to sign a €12m deal for Ajax’ Belgian defender Jan Vertonghen, Nos television says on Monday.

Vertonghen has been at Ajax for nine years after joining the Amsterdam club as a 16-year-old.
Meanwhile, there is no interest in Ajax’ troubled striker Mounir El Hamdaoui, according to news agency ANP. El Hamdaoui, 27, has been sidelined at the club since a public spat with coach Frank de Boer. His contract runs until 2014.
