Thomas Vermaelen's agent is confident a deal to take the Ajax defender to Barclays Premier League giants Arsenal will soon take place.

The 23-year-old Belgian is currently on holiday but agent Sjaak Swart claims he will soon sit down for discussions with the Gunners.

"It's more a question of when than one of if it will take place," Swart told

A £10m fee has reportedly been agreed between the clubs for Vermaelen, who has a contract with Ajax until June 2012.
