Vertonghen gives his Twitter verdict on Janssen and Wanyama
By Harvey Byrne
Jan Vertonghen has praised Tottenham’s two new signings Vincent Janssen and Victor Wanyama, revealing that they have both settled into the side well.
The club ran an #AskVertonghen feature on its official Twitter page, and the vice-captain was quizzed about the two new summer signings.
The Belgium international, who returned from an injury to star in Saturday’s opener against Everton, revealed that the two have settled in and he’s already built up a connection with Janssen.

“Victor and Vincent settled in very well,” said Vertonghen. “They’re both good guys and they both speak better Dutch.
“Victor played in Belgium for four years, so it’s funny to talk about Belgium and Vincent, I’ve actually been to see him in Holland, so I’ve got a good connection with him and he’s settled in very well in the team, I think we already saw that in the game against Everton.”

Wanyama, 25, moved to Tottenham from Premier League rivals Southampton in an £11million deal, while Janssen, 22, left Ajax for White Hart Lane in a £17million move, signing a four-year deal.
The Kenyan midfielder was placed straight into the Tottenham lineup in Spurs’ season opener against Everton on Saturday playing the full 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, Janssen started from the bench, but came on after 56 minutes and helped the north London club earn a vital point at Goodison Park.
