Janssen: Spurs deal near


Vincent Janssen has confirmed he is close to signing for Tottenham from AZ Alkmaar.

Janssen has been heavily linked with a move to White Hart Lane in recent months after finishing as the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season - he scored 27 goals in 34 games for the club - and his move could be completed by the weekend.

AZ Alkmaar are understood to have told Tottenham they must pay their £18.8million asking price in order for the transfer to go ahead but Janssen was given permission to skip training on Friday morning before he was pictured leaving the training ground with a suitcase.

Speaking to Algemeen Dagblad, Janssen confirmed the two clubs are close to an agreement.

"I won't train with AZ any more. The clubs are now really close to an agreement. I will go home and wait for the phone call to go," he said,

"I'm glad that it is almost complete. For me it was clear from the beginning that I wanted to go to Spurs. The competition appeals to me and the plan of the coach is similar to the plan that AZ boss John van den Brom shared with me a year ago at AZ.

"It is a beautiful club with a fantastic stadium and heaps of potential. Anyone in my shoes would take this step.
