Defender Jan Vertonghen says his proposed move to Tottenham has stalled as Ajax continue to try and hold onto him ahead of the new season.

The 25-year-old Belgian international had seemed set to complete a £9.6m move to White Hart Lane but is now thought to be returning to Amsterdam for pre-season training with Ajax.

Vertonghen spoke of his frustration with the situation on Tuesday and admits he does not know how the situation will play out.

He told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad: "As it looks now, I'll be at Ajax on July 2. I'm hoping for a solution, but I'm not expecting a solution. This is a shame. I thought that it would be sorted out much sooner.

"I have one advantage: Ajax have got a good coach who knows me. I play in a good, stable squad. Let's become champions with Ajax for the third time in a row."

With the Dutch giants reportedly refusing to accept a clause in Vertonghen's contract entitling him to 15 per cent of the transfer fee, he added: "I'm shocked. The percentage is correct. It's unbelievable.

"I know that at Ajax a lot of things are leaking. When you hear it about other football players, you don't feel it. It's different when it's about yourself."
