Tottenham’s Dutch Ace strikes a deal with Turkish Outfit
Tottenham Hotspur has finally decided to sell Dutch forward, Vincent Janssen.
The Premier League club has agreed on a one year loan deal with Turkish club Fenerbahce, temporarily ending Janssen’s nightmare run at White Hart Lane.
Spurs decided to sign the player last term for a fee of 17 million in order to ease the burden that is on their main striker Harry Kane.
Since joining Spurs, Jannsen has scored only two goals in 27 appearances and is now allowed to leave the club.
He scored a total of six goals, in all competitions for the North London club.
The former AZ player will reach the Istanbul airport on early Friday morning, in order to continue talks and negotiations regarding his Fenerbahce contract.
Janssen has been left out of Pochettino’s, Spurs squad after the club decided to bring in Spanish striker Fernando Llorente on deadline day of the transfer window.
Despite sending him out on loan, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino claims that the player still has a future with the club.
When asked about Janssen’s exclusion from the UCL squad, Pochettino stated:
“That is about numbers. We only have 17 places [with eight home-grown players required in the selection]. We are 19, so him and [Erik] Lamela we decided [to leave out].”
A move to Fenerbahce means that Janssen would link up with another Tottenham Hotspur flop, Roberto Soldado and could also play alongside former Arsenal captain and fellow Dutchman, Robin Van Persie.
