Tottenham Hotspur’s best kept striking secret Vincent Janssen has been given a double whammy morale boost this month.
First he was told by the club that they wanted him to stay, then he was informed that a bid of €25million had been dismissed out of hand.
Gladys understands that the club enquiring with menaces were the freshly minted Olympique de Marseille. Quite what attracted them to the ‘not quite getting into gear yet’ Dutchman is anyone’s guess. Mine is that French football is far less frenetic than the English variety.
Vinny joins any number of Spurs players in having what was an unmemorable off-season. There were some comments about him looking a tad tubby doing the rounds but this may have just been a mild outbreak of nitpickingitus.
