Micky van de Ven is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a centre-back for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and the Netherlands national team.
Van de Ven began his career with FC Volendam, and made he first team debut against Jong PSV in the Eerste Divisie, going on to make 19 appearances during the 2019–20 season. He assumed the captaincy during his first full season and scored twice in 26 appearances as Volendam reached the promotion play-offs.
Van de Ven transferred to German club VfL Wolfsburg in 2021 for a fee of £3.15 million and played all but one of the team's Bundesliga matches during the 2022–23 season, scoring his only goal in a 2–0 win against Borussia Dortmund. Van de Ven recorded the highest top speed of any defender in the Bundesliga that season, at 22.3 mph.
On 8 August 2023, it was announced that van de Ven had signed a six-year deal with English club Tottenham Hotspur. The deal was reported to be in the region of €50m, near-equalling the club's record fee for a centre-back in Cristian Romero the year before.
Van de Ven made his debut for Tottenham on 13 August during the first matchday of the 2023–24 Premier League season, starting in an away match against Brentford. On 7 October 2023, he scored his first goal in English football in Tottenham's 1–0 win at Luton Town.
On 6 November 2023, Van de Ven went off with a hamstring injury during a game against Chelsea, which is expected to keep him on the sidelines until 2024.
