Vincent Janssen’s Tottenham nightmare is finally over after the Dutch striker completed his move to Mexican side C.F. Monterrey last night.
The 25-year-old joined Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in the summer of 2016, but managed just two goals from open play – six in total – in his 42 appearances in all competitions. Only two of those six goals came in the Premier League, with the last coming in a 4-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth in April 2017.
Janssen made a surprise return to the Tottenham squad towards the back end of last season when Harry Kane was out with an ankle injury – making three substitute appearances in the league, but the damage was already done and he always looked likely to move on this summer.
Tottenham writer for Football.London, Alasdair Gold (@AlasdairGold) reported that the three-times CONCACAF champions have paid have a fee that could eventually rise to £8m for Janssen, meaning Spurs have not even recouped half of the £17m they paid back in 2016.
And after making his move across the pond, Janssen took to Twitter, but there was no mention of any kind of thank you or acknowledgement to Tottenham….
The tweet can be seen below – goodbye Vincent.
