Tottenham Hotspur announced on Tuesday that they have agreed a deal with Mexican side C.F. Monterrey for striker Vincent Janssen:

The 25-year-old joined Spurs from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 but failed to make an impact in north London, managing just six goals in 42 appearances for the club. 

The Dutchman made only three Premier League outings for Tottenham last season and will now look to revive his career with Diego Alonso's side.

Much was expected of Janssen when he arrived at White Hart Lane for a fee of £17 million after a prolific season with the Dutch side AZ:

His performances saw him pick up the Johan Cruyff award given to the Eredivisie's best young player:

However, Janssen failed to live up to expectations in his first campaign at Tottenham and was sent out on loan to Fenerbahce in 2018 for the season.

He got off to the perfect start in Turkey but only managed five goals in 18 appearances in an injury-interrupted campaign:

He returned to Spurs but underwent surgery on a foot injury and did not feature again until January when he turned out for the club's Under-23 side:

Janssen then had to wait until April to make his first Premier League appearance of the season, coming on as a late substitute against Brighton & Hove Albion:

It is little surprise to see Janssen part ways with Spurs ahead of the new season. His move to Tottenham never worked out and he will now head for a fresh start and a new challenge in Mexico.
