The Dutch international was top scorer in the Eredivisie last season which earned him a £17 million transfer to the Premier League. However, Janssen has struggled for form at Spurs, scoring only twice in the Premier League and six times in all competitions.

Speaking to The Sun, Janssen acknowledges that his first season with Tottenham hasn’t gone as planned, but he is not planning on leaving.

He said, “There have been a lot of rumours about me leaving but I have not been at the club for a year yet. When I joined I signed a long contract and I am happy here.

“Of course I am disappointed with my number of goals but I am not a quitter. I like the club — my team-mates, the staff, the fans, the training, everything — and we are doing well, so why would I leave?

“I have not scored as many goals as I wanted to but I know I have improved as a player and I am a better player now than I was last season.

“I like it here, I really enjoy it. I think it’s been a good season for me. I know people will see my number of goals and maybe joke at that.

“But this is my first season in a new country at a new club and I have learnt so much. People think because I am from Holland and we all speak English there would not be any problems.

“But everything in England is still new to me. I don’t see my family or friends. The club have been brilliant with me and done everything possible to try to help me settle in.

“You learn always and I have learnt so much this season. I am always confident and I believe I will score more goals next season.”
