On-loan Tottenham star provides injury boost to his club by returning earlier than expected

Published

on

Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen has received a major injury boost following a meeting with the North Londoners’ medical team.

The Dutch striker moved to Spurs last season for a fee understood to be £18.6m following his exploits with AZ Alkmaar. But he struggled to adapt to the demands of English football, scoring only twice in his debut season with Spurs. He was allowed to join Fenerbahce at the start of the season.

Janssen joined Fenerbahce on loan until the end of the season but has struggled to make an impact due to injuries. The striker has made just 11 appearances and has scored 2 goals since joining the Turkish giants on loan and has not featured in the last two months due to a foot injury.

According to reports, the Fenerbahce officials had feared Janssen would not play again this season due to the toe injury. However, the forward is surprisingly expected to make an early return.

The Dutch international flew back to London to be assessed by Tottenham Hotspur’s medical staff and following the examination, the club officials have told the player that he can return to action by the latest in April, as reported by Sporx (h/t Turkish Football).

The news will come as a massive boost to the Istanbul giants as well as Spurs, who will see the striker return to them after the loan deal expires at the end of the season. Even if Janssen recovers in April, reports suggest that Fenerbahce won’t make the player’s loan deal a permanent one in the summer. This means that the former AZ Alkmaar man would be a Spurs player once the season ends.

But going by our manager Mauricio Pochettino’s statement in January, it looks like Janssen’s future at Spurs is in big doubt.

“When is he coming back? No, he’s not coming back. He’s injured. Maybe you know better than me? But I don’t see him since the summer, I haven’t met him again. I don’t know,” Poch was quoted in a report by Football.london.

That Poch hasn’t been in contact with the 23-year-old throughout his loan-spell suggests our manager is not that interested to keep the player at the club even when he returns from Fenerbahce.

It would be cruel for Janssen, who was given very little time to showcase his talent at Spurs.
