Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen says he is undecided over his future this summer, with both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur being heavily linked with his services.

The Belgian defender has just a year to run on his current deal at the Amsterdam Arena, and has already revealed he sees his immediate future away from the Dutch champions.

However, with the Eredivisie title, which Ajax could clinch this weekend against FC Twente, still up for grabs Vertonghen says his summer departure plans are far from decided.

"Everyone has already made their peace with the fact that I've gone, but I've not gone yet," he said.

"I have a year left on my contract and I haven't decided anything. I'm still at Ajax."

Vertonghen impressed in the two-legged Europa League tie against Manchester United earlier in the campaign, however, it has been Arsenal and Spurs who have shown the most interest in bringing him to the Premier League, according to reports.

Arsenal are understood to fancy pairing the 25-year-old with fellow countryman Thomas Vermaelen in the centre of a defence that has been decimated by injuries this term.

Defensive problems have affected Arsenal's assault on the Premier League title, while their search for an end to their seven year-trophy drought resulted in exits at the hands of Sunderland in the FA Cup, AC Milan in the Champions League and Manchester City in the Carling Cup.

Tottenham have encountered similar issues at the back, with Michael Dawson and Younes Kaboul both picking up long-term injuries and Harry Redknapp, who drafted in Ryan Nelson during the January transfer window, appears eager to add further.

Both clubs will be hoping to include the carrot of Champions League football in their offer to Vertonghen, who has 36 caps for Belgium.

Arsene Wenger's side, currently third, lead fifth placed Spurs by five points in the race for the top four, with the duo sandwiching Newcastle United, while Chelsea, who are seven points adrift, are also in contention.
