ESPN staff

Jan Vertonghen is likely to complete his move from Ajax to Tottenham Hotspur in the near future, according to his agent.

• Kranjcar close to Kiev move
• Redknapp contract talks deadlock
• Vertonghen hopeful over move

Spurs have been in talks for several weeks over the signing of Belgium defender Vertonghen, who has long made clear his desire to secure a move to White Hart Lane.

"Jan is waiting," Mustapha Nakhli told Voetbal International. "The clubs are close. I hope it will be this week. I think it will. We are talking to Tottenham."

Ajax are said to be looking for €15 million for Vertoghen, 25, but Nakhli feels that is excessive given his client has only one year remaining on his contract.

He said: "Fifteen million? Jan has a contract until mid-2013, so what do you think?"
