Former Spurs star van der Vaart: Tottenham have signed a ‘great striker’ in Janssen

Rafael van der Vaart has given his blessing to Tottenham's recruitment of Vincent Janssen.

Spurs signed the Dutch striker from AZ Alkmaar for £17million recently and his arrival in North London has fellow compatriot van der Vaart excited.

"In my opinion Tottenham have signed a great striker," the 33-year-old Real Betis attacking midfielder said.

"He's still young but he's a real striker. He loves to play and work for the team but he doesn't just score goals, he makes goals as well.

"If you work hard at Tottenham and in the Premier League, people will love you and if you score goals, you will be a legend. I hope he will do both.

"I think it's a great signing for Tottenham and a great move for Vincent."
