Jan enjoyed a fantastic first campaign at Spurs in 2012-13, culminating in a place in the PFA's Premier League Team of the Season, voted for by his peers.
Switching between central defence and left-back, Jan played in 34 of our 38 Premier League fixtures and made a total of 49 appearances of 54 in all competitions. He was the only player to start all 12 matches in the Europa League.
We also saw another string to Jan's bow - his ability to score a goal - and he found the target six times.
A regular in the ever-improving Belgian international side, Jan joined Ajax's famed Academy in 2003 before signing professional terms in 2006.
He went on to play over 200 times in all competitions for Ajax, landing the title in 2011 and 2012 and gaining a wealth of experience in Europe.
A regular captain of the team, Jan was also named the prestigious Dutch Player of the Year in 2012.
