Spurs signing Vincent Janssen: No chance joining PSV, Ajax

Vincent Janssen is delighted with his move to Tottenham.

The former AZ Alkmaar striker completed the switch last week.

"PSV and Ajax were never going to pay €20million," the 22-year-old told De Volkskrant. "AZ made a move to one of those clubs impossible.

"Plus Ajax and PSV never made a formal approach."

Janssen publicly criticised AZ's reluctance to sell him, but added: "Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself.

"AZ refused to name an asking price and that annoyed me. They explained afterward that it was all part of the game, but I had to look after my own interests."
