Janssen sends Twitter message to Tottenham fans after sealing exit

By Danny Wright

Vincent Janssen has thanked the Tottenham fans for their support and backing after he agreed terms to join Fenerbahce on a season-long loan deal on Friday.

The Dutch striker signed for Spurs last summer from Eredivisie’s AZ Alkmaar, but after a deadline day swoop for Fernando Llorente was completed last week, it seemed Janssen had slipped down Mauricio Pochettino’s pecking order in North London.

Although the transfer window in England slammed shut last Thursday, Turkish sides like Fenerbahce had until this Friday to complete their business, and it seems that they have identified Janssen as their man to lead the attack after ex-Arsenal man Robin Van Persie picked up an injury with the Istanbul side.

Janssen has now confirmed that he has agreed to join Fenerbahce on a season-long temporary deal, but has reminded Spurs supporters of how grateful he was of them last term and has hinted that he is already looking forward to his return.

“First of all, I would like to thank all the Spurs fans for their ongoing support. I will continue in Istanbul on a season-long loan at Fenerbahce,” he said on his personal Twitter account on Friday afternoon.

“All the best this season and see you soon!”

Janssen was signed by Spurs last summer with the view to him providing back up to Harry Kane, however when called upon, the Dutchman largely failed to fill his colleagues’ boots.

The now Fenerbahce forward scored six goals in 38 appearances across all competitions last term, with the majority of that coming off the bench.

In other Tottenham news, four senior players have been ruled out of the clash versus Everton.
