'Liar', 'End of the road' - Tottenham fans react as club in advanced talks to sell first teamer

By Harry Sykes

Fenerbahce have confirmed they are set to sign Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen on a season-long loan deal – and Spurs fans have taken to Twitter in their droves.

Some have branded manager Mauricio Pochettino a “liar” for claiming on Thursday that Janssen still had a big part to play this season while others predicted it was the “end of the road” for the Dutchman’s Spurs career.

The Turkish giants released a statement on their official website on Friday morning to reveal they have agreed terms in principle with Spurs and Janssen over a shock transfer.

The next step is that the Spurs forward, 23, will arrive in Istanbul at lunchtime to put the finishing touches to the transfer.

“Our club, in principle, has agreed terms with both the player and the club to loan Tottenham and Dutch national team striker, Vincent Janssen,” a statement from the Turkish club read.

“The 23-year-old striker will arrive at Istanbul Ataturk Airport at 12:30 today and negotiations will continue in Istanbul.”

Spurs fans reacted en masse to news of Janssen’s imminent departure just over a year after he was heralded as a key signing.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Janssen joined Spurs in the summer of 2016 for around £18million from AZ Alkmaar after topping the Eredivise 2015-16 goal charts with 27 goals.

He has struggled to make an impression in north Londoner and netted just six goals from 38 matches in his debut campaign, with four of them coming from the penalty spot.

In other Tottenham transfer news, the club have been hit by a devastating blow as a key first-teamer has been sidelined until next year.
