Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has admitted a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur is on the cards, but stresses he has a number of alternatives.

This week Goal.com exclusively revealed Spurs have opened talks with Ajax about an off-season move, but face stiff competition in the race for Vertonghen’s signature.

“I have to make a choice. There’s something going on with Tottenham, but there are more clubs interested in signing me,” Vertonghen told NUsport.

“The most important thing for me is that I get regular playing time. Plus I need a stable environment.

“More and more clubs in England seem to realise that you can go a long way with ‘good football’. Arsenal started with it, and teams like Newcastle, Tottenham and Manchester City are playing good football as well now.”

Vertonghen has a contract with Ajax until June 2013, but is widely expected to leave the Eredivisie champions at season’s end.
