Tottenham's summer transfer targets (2:48)

ESPN's Tottenham correspondent Dan Kilpatrick tells us who he thinks Tottenham will sign this summer. (2:48)

Joel Veltman says he is not aware of any interest from Tottenham but thinks it could be the right time to leave Ajax.

Veltman, 25, has been linked with a move to Tottenham, who are reportedly keeping tabs on the defender, despite him having been offered a new contract to remain with the Dutch club.

"I have spoken with my agent, but he is unaware of any interest from Tottenham," Veltman told VI. "Vincent Janssen was joking that we will become teammates, but there is nothing to it as of yet.

"I have one year left on my current contract, so normally I will either renew or be sold. That is only logical. There will be clarity after my holiday. But a transfer is a bigger option than before.

"Ajax's offer to renew is a nice gesture, they want me to stay. But this could be the moment for me to look at other options. But the right club will have to come along. There is nothing concrete for now, but I am not in a rush."
