Vertonghen, 25, was signed by Tottenham from Ajax for around £12 million last summer and has since emerged as a vital member of Andre Villas-Boas' squad.

The Belgium international has enjoyed a particularly impressive March, scoring three times in England's top division.

The managerial prize for March has been awarded to Everton boss David Moyes, whose contract at Goodison Park expires in the summer.

Moyes led Everton to three wins during March to help maintain his side's push for a top-four finish, with the club currently sixth in the table.
