Jan Vertonghen said Rafael van der Vaart gave him a positive feeling about the club
Tottenham new boy Jan Vertonghen has revealed that Spurs star Rafael van der Vaart had helped sell the club to him.
The north Londoners completed the deal for the Belgium international last week and the 25-year-old is excited by the prospect of plying his trade at White Hart Lane.
“He left when I came to Ajax but I met him a few times and spoke with him about Spurs,” the Belgium international told Spurs TV.
“He was very positive, gave me a great feeling about the club and was very positive about the club, about the players and the Premier League. I hope these stories are true.”
