Tottenham new boy Vincent Janssen has shared his thoughts on appearing alongside Harry Kane for the first time, in quotes published on the club’s official website.

The Dutchman was a second half substitute in the 6-1 demolition of Inter on Friday and he impressed with his performance, particularly in his link-up play with his fellow frontmen.

There has been much speculation over how Janssen will be utilized this season and whether he was brought in as back up for Kane or with a view to forming a partnership with last season's Premier League top scorer.

The 22-year old lead the line when he was introduced, with Kane dropping back to the number ten role, and the signs were promising - and Janssen is hopeful this is just the start of a fruitful attacking partnership.

“It was nice. It’s new for us. Of course, we’d never played together so it’s good that we’ve done that now. It’s nice to play in the team with him because he’s a quality player and I hope we can do likewise some more times,” said the summer signing.

Janssen provided Spurs fans with the first real glimpse of what he can do against Inter, after being isolated as part of an under-strength team against Juventus last month and having a slightly improved performance against Atletico Madrid.

The Holland international was all action in Friday’s encounter – assisting Dele Alli’s goal, playing a huge part in Shayon Harrison’s and scoring himself - and demonstrated that he will make it extremely hard for Mauricio Pochettino to keep him out of the starting XI.
