Despite previous reports Fenerbahce are willing to enter into talks with Tottenham Hotspur with regards to making Vincent Janssen’s deal permanent or another loan, things have changed.
In December we covered reports from Turkey that Fenerbahce were happy with the Dutchman’s contribution after he joined from Tottenham last summer, and they were considering signing the player on a permanent deal or at least on loan for another 12 months.
However, due to the injury he picked up during the game against Bursaspor in December Janssen is still sidelined, and recent reports suggested he could be ruled out for another two months.
Fenerbahce’s medical staff are concerned the player’s season might be over, although there’s been news this week he could return in April, and Aksam report the Turkish giants don’t to risk taking the Tottenham loanee for another campaign, due to his injury problem.
Aksam claim Fenerbahce don’t want another ‘Robin van Persie syndrome’ after they signed the forward from Manchester United, only for him to be hampered with injuries during his time in Istanbul.
It’s now looking likely Janssen will return to Tottenham this summer, but it’s unclear whether he’s in the long term plans of Mauricio Pochettino.
Should the Spurs manager know already he won’t be needing Janssen then it’s never too early to start trying to find solutions for a summer exit.
