Major injury blow: Tottenham centre-forward could miss rest of season - report
Tottenham centre-forward Vincent Janssen could miss the rest of the season after his foot injury has turned out worse than first feared while on loan at Fenerbahce, according to a report.
ESPN claims that Janssen, 23, was thought to have only picked up a minor toe injury before the winter break in Turkey, but now it is said that that he may not return until mid-April at the earliest with what has turned out to be a major injury blow.
Janssen was sent to the Istanbul giants on loan until the end of the campaign last summer, but he has made just 12 appearances in all competitions.
it is understood that the Netherlands international has had further scans on his injury, which have revealed he has an edema on his right foot which is holding fluid.
ESPN reports that the striker will not undergo surgery through fear it could damage nerve endings in his foot.
Janssen is said to be walking by the aid of an orthopedic foot but it does not seem likely he will play for Fenerbahce before his loan there ends.
He was signed by Tottenham from AZ Alkmaar last summer but in his first season in North London the Dutchman scored just six goals in 38 appearances across all competitions.
