Report: Top flight title chasers make bold decision over transfer hunt for Tottenham attacker
Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen will likely return to the club after his loan spell with Fenerbahce after they changed their mind over signing him permanently, according to a report.
Turkish sports website Interspor claim that the Super Lig side have been put off securing a permanent deal for the Dutch powerhouse forward, with his recent injury blow crucial in their decision.
He has been ruled out of action for the coming months with a foot injury, and has managed to score just three goals in 12 appearances for his loan side this season.
While it is said the title chasers, currently sitting third in the Turkish top flight, were planning on keeping the 23-year-old long term, they appear to have made the bold decision to renege on their original plans.
Football Insider verdict
Janssen did not make the grade while at Tottenham and they would no doubt have been hoping to have a pre-prepared exit strategy for the end of the season. However it appears as though the most likely door has just shut in their face and now they will have to try and find other suitors who would be interested. His lack of playing time this season, thanks to his injury woes, mean that there are not going to be many looking his way and his struggles in England will not help Spurs’ cause. A move back home to the Netherlands could be an option but who is going to pay the asking price Tottenham are likely to be demanding? It is a tough situation for Spurs, and one they will need to resolve over the summer.
