Spurs complete Janssen signing

Tottenham have officially unveiled new signing Vincent Janssen, who they bought from Eredivisie club AZ Alkmaar for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old striker had a deadly season for AZ last term, bagging 27 goals in 34 league games to finish the campaign as the Dutch top-flight's top goalscorer.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is known to have been searching for able support for star striker Harry Kane for the best part the last 12 months and the club are happy to have finally found their man.

"We are delighted to announce the signing of Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar, subject to international clearance," the north London club confirmed on Tuesday. "The striker has signed a contract with the club until 2020."

The conclusion of the deal does not come as much of a surprise after Janssen stopped training with the rest of the AZ squad following his announcement last week that the transfer was on the verge of being completed.

"I'm incredibly happy that I can make this step to Tottenham Hotspur," the Dutchman told AZ's official website. "I'm glad the clubs finally agreed. I've shaken everyone's hand and I leave via the front door. I think it's a great deal for all three parties.

"I'm leaving for a great football nation and will play in the Champions League. I had the best footballing year of my life with AZ. The people I've worked with were fantastic. I can only look back on my time in Alkmaar with a positive feeling."
