Veltman: No truth to Spurs rumours

Joel Veltman admits that while he would consider a transfer, rumours of interest from Spurs originated from a joke made by Dutch international teammate Vincent Janssen.

The 25-year old defender's contract with Ajax expires at the end of the upcoming season, leading to speculation over whether he would take advantage of reported interest from England.

He was quick to point out, however, that the source of the rumour may not be as legitimate as pundits suggested.

"I have spoken with my agent, but he is unaware of any interest from Tottenham. Vincent Janssen was joking that we will become team-mates, but there is nothing to it as of yet," Veltman told VI.

"I have one year left on my current contract, so normally I will either renew or be sold. That is only logical. There will be clarity after my holiday. But a transfer is a bigger option than before.

"Ajax's offer to renew is a nice gesture, they want me to stay. But this could be the moment for me to look at other options. 

"But the right club will have to come along. There is nothing concrete for now, but I am not in a rush."
