Jan Vertonghen claims he opted to join Tottenham Hotspur over Arsenal as Arsene Wenger wanted to play him in midfield.


Meanwhile, Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has said any further additions to his squad in January must subscribe to his and Tottenham's attacking philosophy. Speaking in a question and answer session on Twitter, the Portuguese said: "The players we are trying to bring in and have here also embrace that philosophy which we want to carry into the future. "(Being at Spurs) is great because of the philosophy the club want to implement, what I think about football and the way we should play. "I think we should have a go, play well and be open."
