Former skipper Ledley King has backed Spurs’ new boys and says he expects Vincent Janssen and Victor Wanyama to do well.
After a busy summer Harry Kane may yet be eased into pre-season more gradually than his fellow internationals, which could give new signing Vincent Janssen an early chance to impress.
Janssen’s £17million move from AZ Alkmaar was confirmed on Tuesday, the young Dutchman following midfielder Victor Wanyama as Tottenham’s second signing of the summer.
“I’m pleased with those two signings,” King said. “Another attacking option was very important and Janssen has a great scoring record from playing in Holland.
“Wanyama I’ve seen many times and I’ve been very impressed by him. He’s a bit like Eric Dier, you don’t see all the good work he does.
“I saw him for Southampton at White Hart Lane last season and he was one of the best players on the pitch.
“The manager knows him well so it’s no surprise he’s gone for him. I think both players will be a big boost to the squad.”
King was speaking as two members of the Washington Redskins joined youngsters at Northumberland Park School. Tottenham will play host to NFL games at their new stadium, due to open in 2018.
