Ajax skipper unhappy with broken promises.
Dutch source Voetbalprimeeur claims that Tottenham target Jan Vertonghen is ready to pull the plug on any potential move away from his Amsterdam club in protest at Ajax’s unwillingness to stick with an agreement he made in relation to his sale.
The 25 year old Belgian, who rose through the Ajax ranks before becoming club captain, is said to have secured an agreement to receive 15% of any transfer fee paid for his services only now the Eredivisie side is refusing to play ball, leaving the defender to threaten to see out the remainder of his contract and then leave for nothing.
Vertonghen only has a year to run on his current deal and was set to complete a £9.6m move to White Hart Lane, despite the fact that the North London club are without a manager following the sacking of Harry Redknapp.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was keen to bring in Vertonghen to strengthen a defence that has been stricken with injury concerns over the past two seasons with the likes of Michael Dawson, William Gallas and the now out of contract centre back Ledley King, all suffering time out on the sidelines.
