‘You’ve got keep your woman happy’: Tottenham Target Hints At A Possible Transfer If An Approach Is Made

Joel Veltman

Reported Tottenham target Joel Veltman has admitted that his wife would jump at the chance of living in London if it arises and has said that Tottenham is a wonderful club. However, he also revealed that there has not been an approach from the club, despite the interest.

Veltman was reported as a subject of Tottenham’s interest by the Telegraph, but things have not moved forward since. Tottenham have been showing an interest in the player for 3 years now but nothing seems to have materialised.

Joel Veltman, a product of the Ajax academy, moved to the club in 2001 and has risen through their ranks to establish himself as one of the regulars in the team. They are now in the finals of the Europa League competition and are set to face Manchester United on Wednesday.

When he was questioned about the potential interest from London, he said while talking on Ziggo Sport’s Peptalk programme (h/t football.London),

“If there is a club from London, then she is the first to say ‘sign!”

The defender also revealed that he has not heard from the Premier League outfit, but that he rates Spurs as “wonderful”, thus leaving the door open for a move to the North London club.

He said: “No, I have not heard anything in terms of interest. But sure, it’s a wonderful club.”

Veltman explained that while he would look at the club in any future move and insists that keeping his partner happy is one of his primary goals.

He added: “You’ve got keep your woman happy. That is sort of a package deal: I’m a beautiful club, she’s a beautiful country.”

But the Ajax defender does not seem to be thinking about the future yet and wants to focus on the present. The Dutch club take on Manchester United in the Europa League final tomorrow.

“Let’s start with winning the final first”, Veltman added.

Tottenham do need a centre-half as any potential injury to one of the Belgians in the team would leave the squad a little short on numbers. However, signing Veltman could prove to be a gamble. Spurs would do well to bring in an established centre-half instead of a developing one as the club cannot afford to take a chance for the next few years while the stadium move nears completion.
