Tottenham defender target Jan Vertonghen is waiting on clarification over his move, the Ajax star has admitted, with the club set to confirm today that Andre Villa-Boas will be the new manager.

Vertonghen's situation has been uncertain for a while now, with his move to Spurs looking set before Harry Redknapp left the club last month.

And with Tottenham looking likely to announce Andre Villas-Boas as their next manager today, the 25 year old is hoping that his future can be clarified soon.

"Of course it goes through my head that there is still no clarity about my future," he told Ajax's website.

"It is difficult and I can't say I don't think about it but that's how it is and I have to adapt. For now I play for Ajax and I will always give 100 per cent for them.

"I am a professional athlete and despite all the issues for me it is simply the beginning of a new season. And that, for me, starts at Ajax."

Jan Vertonghen
Jan Vertonghen is still waiting for word from Tottenham.

Vertonghen refused to put a time frame on when he hoped to hear from Tottenham by, but the Belgium international said that he would continue to work hard for Ajax until he knows his fate.

"It is obviously impossible to say how long these things take but well before August 31 there must be clarity," he explained.

"Until then I will just focus on Ajax."

Though Tottenham have been without a manager for some weeks now, Daniel Levy has still been very active in the transfer window, though the chairman is yet to make any purchases as yet.

Gareth Bale signed a contract extension with the north London outfit, while Niko Kranjcar sealed a move away from the club to Dynamo Kiev.

And though transfer speculation is once again surrounding Luka Modric, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid said to be interested in the midfielder, Levy is once again standing his ground and refusing to make a deal over the star.

While at Chelsea Villas-Boas was very much under the transfer direction of Roman Abramovich, the Portuguese tactician will no doubt have more say when he makes the move to Tottenham, and whether he rates Vertonghen remains to be seen.
