I trust UK viewers are enjoying the heat. In some parts of Scotland men are turning from grey to white as they prepare to burn.
Speaking of getting burnt, Jan Vertonghen has an interview in Nieuwsblad today. It emerges that Levy & Co. were over on Monday, but the deal is far from done.
“The chairman of Tottenham was Monday in Amsterdam. But they are still out.”
It weighs on you?
“Not really. I did not expect that I would feel so little stress. Otherwise I stay another year at Ajax and I can then leave a free transfer. “
Tottenham will miss the Champions League. Plays a role?
“With me, but perhaps at Tottenham. It might affect their budget.The chances are that there does not seem the first week and a half clarification. But I want to prepare for the new season to startwith my new team. “
Is it true that you said to Ajax, ‘I want to Tottenham if I’m not going anywhere?’
“So I have not said. I said my preference goes to Tottenham. On my feeling. I feel best at that club and I am a feeling person. They have already invited me and want to act fast. They say I’m their only option. That’s a compliment. “
