How Twitter reacted to Vincent Janssen’s loan switch to Turkish side Fenerbahce

Things haven’t particularly worked out the way that Vincent Janssen would have wanted in the Premier League after making his £17 million switch from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar during last summer.

His impressive goal-scoring record in Holland – scoring 31 times in 49 appearances – left Tottenham fans with large expectations for the 23-year-old but he simply hasn’t managed to reach such heights.

And after rejecting moves to Brighton and West Brom on deadline day last week it seems that his Premier League misery is over for now with Turkish side Fenerbahce confirming a season-long loan.

A statement from Fenerbahce, via the Evening Standard, reads:

“Our club, in principle, has agreed with the player himself and his club on the loaning of Dutch national team striker Vincent Janssen from Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur.

“The 23-year-old striker will arrive at Istanbul Ataturk Airport at 12:30 today [Friday, September 8] and negotiations will continue in Istanbul.”

Janssen managed just two goals in 27 Premier League appearances last season, being awarded just seven starts, and Fernando Llorente’s arrival has only pushed the Dutchman further down the order after he was left out of Mauricio Pochettino’s squad for the Champions League that was announced this week.

And Fenerbahce took to Twitter to announce the switch…

With the majority of supporters feeling sorry for the Dutchman…

Commending him for his attitude during a testing season…

Others weren’t as bothered at Janssen leaving…

And are instead content with Harry Kane and Fernando Llorente…

Whilst some took a second to note Fenerbahce’s new lethal – and ex-Spurs – strike duo…

What do you think Tottenham fans? Should Janssen have gone? Let us know below.
