Tottenham Hotspur flop Vincent Janssen, 24, is set to end his miserable spell at the club with a move to Burnley claims the Daily Mail.

Ashley Barnes is the Clarets top scorer in the Premier League with four goals, closely followed by New Zealand international Chris Wood. Sean Dyche knows his side which currently sits 16th in the table, will continue to struggle so long as they remain a low-scoring side.

A phenomenal strike rate in his native Dutch Eredivisie hasn’t materialised in the English game and an ill-fated loan spell at Fenerbahce proved less successful than hoped.

Janssen is keen on a permanent move away from north London this month and recently rejected a loan move to Sevilla for the remainder of the season.

Tottenham are so desperate to remove the striker from their wage bill that club chairman Daniel Levy is willing to take a £5m loss this transfer window.

As the Lilywhites struggle with their finances after the cost of their new stadium almost doubled, Levy let it be known he will accept an offer in the region of £12m for the former Netherlands international.

Despite injury to Harry Kane, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino turned to Fernando Llorente, 33, for last weekend’s trip to Fulham.

Even though he is reportedly popular at the club, Janssen has no future at Tottenham. As well as Burnley, there is great interest in him from the Chinese Super League and MLS clubs in the USA.
