Netherlands international forward Vincent Janssen has vowed to fight for his Tottenham career.

The 22-year-old, who arrived at White Hart Lane back in July following his reported £18.6m move from AZ Alkmaar, has scored just four goals and provided three assists in 27 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League outfit so far this season.

However, despite struggling under manager Mauricio Pochettino this term, the striker is determined to prove a hit in North London, even after being left on the bench during Sunday’s 3-0 win at Championship side Fulham in the FA Cup.

But in an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Janssen also revealed, “I have given myself at least a year to succeed and it’s not over yet.

“I’m still young and, before I came here, I had played at the highest level only a year. I will fight with everything that is in me. Then we see.

“In training I feel I’m getting better, but match practice is the only thing I do not have at this time. I try to compensate by giving all in training. I do what I can.”

Interestingly, all of Janssen’s strikes in a Spurs shirt have come from the penalty spot (4) – none from open play.
