Vertonghen played alongside Eriksen for two years in Holland before deciding to try his luck in the Premier League.

It is considered to be only a matter of time before Eriksen also heads for the exits in Amsterdam, with Europe's top clubs ready to pounce once he opens the door to transfer talks.

Tottenham would be among those keen to acquire the highly-rated playmaker, and Vertonghen feels the Denmark international has all the attributes required to be a success in the Premier League.

"Technically, he's one of the best players I've played with," Vertonghen said in the Evening Standard.

"He can use his right foot and his left foot equally well and he is always fit.

"Since he was 17 or 18 he has played so many games for Ajax and hardly ever been injured. When he gains a bit more physical strength, then I think he can play in any team.

"I don't want to speak for him but he is a good player, and I think a good player can play here."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
