Fenerbahce sign Tottenham's Vincent Janssen

Fans take selfies with Tottenham Hotspur dutch striker Vincent Janssen upon his arrival at Ataturk International airport in Istanbul

The Netherlands global is flying to Istanbul to undergo a medical and complete the relevant paperwork ahead of Friday's transfer deadline in Turkey. He was then omitted from the clubs Champions League squad, with Mauricio Pochettino claiming there simply wasn't space for him.

In his presser before Saturday's match away at Everton, Pochettino said that Janssen remains in his plans.

After seeing Spurs sign Fernando Llorente, and then being dropped from the club's Champions League squad, a switch to Turkey, albeit to one of the the great clubs of the country may feel like a step down.

We only have 17 places [with eight home-grown players required in the selection]. "But he has a future like other players here".




The 23-year-old signed for Tottenham in July 2016 for a £17million fee from AZ Alkmaar, but he failed to establish himself as a key figure at White Hart Lane last term.

Many of the Tottenham supporters have likened Janssen to another big-money flop, Roberto Soldado - and ironically the Spaniard could well be the Dutchman's new strike partner at Fenerbahce.

As for Fenerbahce, their star striker Robin van Persie picked up an injury in the worldwide break.
