Like several strikers at Tottenham, it’s fair to say Vincent Janssen simply didn’t make the grade.
The Dutchman was brought to White Hart Lane to play back up to Harry Kane and ensure Spurs did not have to rely solely on the Englishman.
42 appearances have produced six goals and four assists, with the striker going out on loan to try and revive his career.
That didn’t really work out as injuries limited his impact and his next move will not be a return to Fenerbache but a switch to Mexico instead.
VI report that the striker has reached an agreement with Monterrey, signing a multi-year deal with the club, and will be flying to Central America this week to complete everything.
The Mexican side have offered €7m upfront for Janssen, a fee that Spurs have accepted despite the fact it represents a huge loss on the €22m they paid for him. The newspaper says they’re happy to let Janssen go as ‘there was little confidence’ in him.
Janssen will link up with former teammate Celso Ortiz in Mexico, the pair having played together at AZ Alkmaar, with a warm welcome expected for him from everyone else as well, if midfielder Maxi Meza is to be believed.
The Mexican media haven’t been quite as excited at this one as one expect.
