The report goes onto state that both Galatasaray and Wolfsburg tried to sign Janssen over the January transfer window.

A source close to Galatasaray also revealed to that the Istanbul giants had made a late move for Janssen in January.

However, Spurs blocked the move due to a lack of depth in forward positions.

Galatasaray wanted to sign Janssen on a six-month loan deal with an option to sign him on a permanent deal at the end of the season.

Janssen’s agent Louis Laros told Turkish-Football that his client will remain at Tottenham.

“Janssen wants to stay at Tottenham until the end of the season and Pochettino has faith in him,” Laros said.

Tottenham are currently involved in the title race and are second in the Premier League table, nine points behind leaders Chelsea.
