Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has praised club teammate Jan Vertonghen after his landmark appearance for the north London club.
Veronghen, who earns around £100k-per-week, took to social networking site Twitter to express his disappointment at Spurs’s defeat against West Brom at the weekend. It was a memorable day for him personally, as he made his 250th appearance for the club.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are holding on to their fourth position, but they need to win their next two matches to book their place for next season’s Champions League with Chelsea, on fifth, breathing down their neck.
Former Spurs player, Jake Livermore, scored the game’s only goal in the final minutes to earn all three points for the Baggies.
Spurs will have to beat Newcastle United and Leicester City to guarantee a top four finish, and Vertonghen insists their fate is still in their own hands.
