Harry Kane has described Vincent Janssen as “great” after the pair played together for the first time in the club’s 6-1 victory over Inter Milan on Friday.
The pair briefly played up front together in the second half after Janssen came on during the break.
The England international moved back to a second striker position to accommodate the £18.8million former AZ Alkmaar front man and Kane even got on the score sheet while they were both on the pitch.
“He’s a great player,” said Kane to Spurs TV, when asked about Janssen after the match. “He likes to hold the ball up and bring others into the game.
“I’m sure we will play together this season.
“You can see he’s very strong, he’s got a good finish when he’s given the chance. He’s a great addition to the squad, as both signings have been.”
Janssen also got himself on the scoreboard against the Serie A giants.
The 22-year-old striker was the top scorer in the Dutch League last season with a virtual goal-a-game haul of 27 goals in 34 games. In all competitions, he struck 32 times in 49 matches.
The Holland spearhead has also scored three goals in five international appearances even though he only made his international bow in March.
He scored the equaliser from the penalty spot in the recent friendly against England at Wembley and netted the opening goal in the 2-0 win over Austria earlier this month.
