Former Tottenham player who the club sold for cheap has 25 goals and assists this season

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur have had a history of letting go of players who have gone on to perform well at other clubs, and it seems that history is repeating itself once again.

They have sold several players who are now shining at other clubs, the most recent being Kieran Trippier and Marcus Edwards.

Trippier was sold to Atletico Madrid, where he impressed before moving to Newcastle and becoming a key player in their success this season.

Similarly, Edwards, a product of Tottenham’s academy, was sold to Sporting Lisbon, where he is having an outstanding season with 26 goal contributions in 47 appearances, scoring 12 goals and setting up 14 for his teammates.

He was also impressive against Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League group stages, causing trouble for the opposition throughout the game.

Vincent Janssen is another player who failed to find his feet at Tottenham after being signed for around €22 million in July 2016. The Dutch striker had an impressive season with AZ Alkmaar, scoring 27 goals in 34 league appearances, earning him the prestigious Johan Cruijff Trophy for the best young player in the Netherlands.

However, he struggled to make an impact in his first season with Spurs, scoring just six goals in 38 appearances across all competitions.

After a failed loan spell at Fenerbahce, Janssen was sold to Mexican side Monterrey for just €9m where he also struggled to make an impact. Finally, he found his form with Belgian side Royal Antwerp, scoring 19 goals and assisting 6, i.e, 25 goal contributions in 41 appearances in all competitions. His performances have helped Antwerp in the Championship round of the league, giving them hope of winning their first league title since 1957.
