Ajax's Jan Vertonghen rules out winter transfer

Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen has dismissed rumours that he could be leaving the Amsterdam giants in the January transfer window.

The Belgium international turned down an offer from Valencia on deadline day of the summer transfer window, while Inter are also believed to be interested in luring Vertonghen away from the Amsterdam ArenA.

Nevertheless, Vertonghen has now made it clear that he has no intention of leaving his club halfway through the season.

"I have really had enough of all the questions about whether I'm leaving Ajax. Nobody has to ask me whether I'm on the move in January, because I will not leave the club this season," Vertonghen said to AT5.

The 24-year-old defender has a contract with Ajax until the summer of 2013.
