Agent insists top Dutch transfer target still likely


Tottenham:Jan Vertonghen’s agent insists his client’s move to Tottenham is still on despite the sacking of Harry Redknapp.

Spurs began talks with Ajax over the transfer some weeks ago, but the two sides are still reported to be some way apart on their valuation of the 25-year-old defender.

Vertonghen, whose contract expires next summer, has made it clear he wants to move to White Hart Lane despite interest from other Premier League clubs, most notably Arsenal.

Vertonghen’s agent Mustapha Nakhli insists the move is “very close”.

“Nothing has changed at all. He is coming to Tottenham for the club and not for the manager,” said Nakhli .

“Managers come and go,” he added.
