Tottenham sell Vincent Janssen to Monterrey
Vincent Janssen’s Tottenham career is over.
The Dutch international striker has joined Mexican side Monterrey.
Neither Monterrey nor Spurs disclosed any details about the transfer fee or length of the contract.
Monterrey are the current CONCACAF Champions League champs.
Spurs take a financial hit on Janssen
Will Daniel Levy be happy with the Janssen deal?
Now 25, Janssen joined Tottenham from AZ Alkmaar back in 2016.
Spurs spent 17 million pounds on the striker, who had been prolific in the Eredivisie.
However, Janssen never found his scoring touch in the Premier League.
He scored six goals in 42 games in England.
Last season Janssen was loaned out to Fenerbahce.
While neither of the clubs confirmed the transfer fee, several outlets have reported on the price tag.
At the low end of the scale, ESPN report “the Mexican media put the price at $7 million, with the contract to last five years.”
According to the BBC, Tottenham sold Janssen for 6.3 million pounds.
Reporter Alasdair Gold claims that Janssen’s fee could total 8 million pounds.
So in the best case, Spurs lost 9 million pounds in transfer fees on Janssen.
The Vincent Janssen fee could be worth up to £8m eventually for Spurs. He signed for around £17m from AZ Alkmaar in 2016.
