This week he shared an Instagram post telling Turkish soccer fans: “On the way back.”

Besiktas are yet to find a replacement for Cenk Tosun, who joined Everton last January.

They believe the Tottenham forward is the type of player they hope to sign in the summer and are monitoring Janssen’s situation closely.

Janssen might not have scored a lot of goals for Spurs but fans recognised that he always gave it his all.

Hopefully, he will still have a chance of showing what he can do in the rest of his injury-hit season.
