Spurs signed Vertonghen in 2012 from Ajax and marked the date with a tweet from the club’s official account on Friday.

Indeed, the Belgium international has gone on to make a total of 286 appearances in north London, having been through three managerial reins at the club.
Signed when Andre Villas-Boas bossed Spurs, he then endured the reign of Tim Sherwood prior to the appointment of current head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
While Vertonghen has yet to win a trophy at the club, he played a key role in the club’s run to the Champions League final last season and has been integral to multiple qualifications for the competition.
At the age of 32, he remains a major part of the club’s squad and fans have lavished praise upon him as they remember the signing of the ex-Ajax centre-back.
Take a look at the best of the reaction below!
