Vincent Janssen’s ordeal at Tottenham looks as though it could finally be about to come to an end this summer.
Football London understands that his move to Mexican club Monterrey should be completed in the coming days, therefore ending his wretched stay in north London.
Since signing for Spurs, the Dutchman has scored just two goals in the Premier League and as such, news of his possible departure provoked a mixed reaction on Twitter.
One supporter hinted that it was a shame that things didn’t work out whilst another said they should have terminated his contract earlier.
Another fan said he’d wasted his best years at the club but wished him well for the future. Meanwhile, one individual claimed that the Dutchman would always be a good finisher.
The response was perhaps surprisingly tame for someone who never hit the ground running at Spurs, being subjected to a huge lack of game time whilst under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino.
Here’s the best of the debate on Twitter.
One of the few times I think Spurs have treated a player badly. Should have cut their losses and terminated his contract.

Agreed, what a shame. Good luck Vincent.

I remember his debut at Everton. Hit the keeper in the chest from point blank range…if that goes in his whole time at spurs could have been very different

I feel for the lad. Wasn’t a Spurs type of player in our current guise. Show what happens when you don’t buy your first or second choice. I wish him well.

He’s wasted his best years at our club. I wish him well.

Surely he’s better than a nobody team in the Mexican league?

He leaves with love from the fans. Didn’t work out for him but the fans always got behind him, similar to Soldado.

Wish him all the best to be fair, there’s a goal scorer in there somewhere. Needs the right service and a lot of love. A good finisher is always a good finisher.
