Meet this defender from Belgium. In this wiki we are going to tell you all about this robust centre back who is currently playing for Tottenham in the Premier League. Before he joined Tottenham he played for Ajax. During his time at AFC Ajax he was seen as one of the most talented defenders in Europe. He played for 6 years at AFC Ajax and he was also sent on loan for 1 year (to RKC Waalwijk). Tottenham finally became interested in his services during the summer of 2012 and he made the move for a fee of 12 million euro. At the Spurs he has been a very important part of a succesful squad. He has been their rock at the back and rarely misses a game. He even scores an occasional goal from a set piece and he is certainly among the fan favorites, along with his fellow Belgian teammate Toby Alderweireld. He also plays international football for the Belgian national team, De Rode Duivels. He is a part of the so called 'golden generation' a group of players that made it to the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2018. Eventhough that is not exactly a golden achievement we are certain that Super Jan played a huge role in that 'success'.
