Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen edged closer to completing his switch to Fenerbahce earlier on Friday, with a number of pictures from the Turkish club's official Twitter account showing him undertaking his medical and also in the club's shirt.

However, though you would have expected the 23-year-old to be delighted at the switch, and the fact it will bring him closer to the first team football he has been unable to get at Spurs, the photos seem to paint a different picture.

After seeing Spurs sign Fernando Llorente, and then being dropped from the club's Champions League squad, a switch to Turkey, albeit to one of the the great clubs of the country may feel like a step down.

Fenerbahce's photos of Janssen contrasted somewhat with the Netherlands international's more apparent excitement when he sealed his move to Tottenham and the Premier League in July of last summer.

There is no denying that Janssen has had a difficult year since leaving his home country, where he top scored for AZ and broke into the Netherlands side.

Arriving for big money from the Eredivisie, Jansen didn't manage to score for Tottenham from open play until March - months after he first arrived, with his only goals coming from the penalty spot. 

This season didn't start any easier - he played just one minute of the club's first three games.

He will surely be hoping to rediscover his form in Istanbul, and will get to play European football too with Fener playing in the Europa League. Maybe if he gets among the goals again there will be a few more smiles from the striker.
