Netherlands national team manager Danny Blind has expressed his happiness at Vincent Janssen’s summer move to Tottenham Hotspur, speaking to Voetbal International.

Janssen was signed by AZ Alkmaar from Almere City as a relative unknown at the start of last season but the striker arguably proved to be the signing of the Dutch Eredivise after he managed a sensational 27 league goals in just 34 appearances.

Given his exploits, it was no surprise whatsoever to see a host of top clubs across Europe express their interest in signing Janssen this summer, and Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur were the side actively pursuing the 22-year-old.

Following protracted negotiations, Tottenham finally managed to secure the services of Janssen for a fee believed to be in the region of around £17 million and in the process the striker became the most expensive player ever sold by AZ.

Janssen has made a decent start to life at White Hart Lane and he will most certainly have a big part to play if Tottenham are to mount another challenge for the Premier League title this season.

Spurs’ fans are very pleased with the acquisition of Janssen and now even Netherlands national team manager Danny Blind has gone on to express his happiness at the striker's move to North London.

Janssen has recently established himself as the first-choice striker for Netherlands and Blind has stated his belief that the move to Tottenham will serve the attacker well.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Blind said: "I had a choice of four strikers. The role of Vincent Janssen seems clear to me. He has made a good move (to Tottenham).”

Janssen has already managed three goals in just five appearances for the Netherlands national team and he looks set to spearhead the Oranje attack in the years to come.
