Club career

ADO Den Haag

Born in Leidschendam, South Holland, Janmaat started his senior career in 2007–08, with ADO Den Haag in the Eerste Divisie.


In the following off-season the 19-year-old moved straight into the Eredivisie, signing for SC Heerenveen. In Heerenveen's Europa League match against Hertha Berlin on 23 October 2009, Janmaat came on as a 73rd-minute substitute for Norwegian Christian Grindheim and received a red card three minutes later for a late challenge on Nemanja Pejčinović but Heerenveen held on for a 1–0 victory.[3][4] After serving a required suspension, Janmaat scored in his next Europa League appearance on 16 December 2009, netting his side's final goal in a 5–0 win over FK Ventspils at the Abe Lenstra Stadion in Heerenveen but the win proved insufficient as Heerenveen failed to qualify for the knockout stages.[5]

On 21 December 2011, Janmaat scored Heerenveen's ninth goal in a 11–1 thrashing of Eerste Divisie side FC Oss to reach the quarter-finals of the KNVB Beker.[6] During his four seasons with the club Janmaat was a starter in three after appearing in only ten games in his debut campaign, which ended with conquest of the Dutch Cup.


In the middle of 2012, after his contract expired, he signed for fellow top-division side Feyenoord, which he had already represented as a youth.[7] Janmaat picked up two yellow cards in the space of one minute and was sent off on 9 December 2012 as Feyenoord drew with NAC Breda 2–2 in league play.[8] On 17 March 2013, he scored the winning goal for Feyenoord as they defeated FC Utrecht 2–1.[9]

Janmaat scored his first goal of the 2013–14 Eredivisie season on 16 February 2014, converting a pass from Graziano Pellè as Feyenoord drew 1–1 with NAC Breda.[10] On 13 April, he scored on the half-volley in the 76th minute as Feyenoord defeated PSV 2–0 in league play.[11][12]

Newcastle United

On 17 July 2014, Janmaat joined Premier League club Newcastle United on a six-year deal for an undisclosed fee.[13] He made his competitive debut on 17 August, playing the full 90 minutes as Newcastle began their league campaign with a 2–0 home defeat to Manchester City.[14] On 30 August, Janmaat scored his first goal for the club in a 3–3 draw against Crystal Palace.[15] Over the course of the season, he assisted goals in matches against West Bromwich Albion,[16] Burnley,[17] Crystal Palace[18] and Aston Villa.[19] For his defensive performances, he was announced as Player of the Year by the Newcastle United Supporters Trust.[20]

On 15 August 2015, Janmaat was sent off for two bookable offences against Swansea City, and was therefore unavailable for the following match against Manchester United.[21] On 25 August, and in the second round Football League Cup tie against Northampton Town, he scored the third goal in a 4–1 win.[22] On 19 September, he scored the consolation goal in a 2–1 loss to Watford.[23] On 23 September, he was named captain for the third round League Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday, but was taken off at half-time, citing illness.[24] He later assisted goals in matches against Norwich City,[25] Crystal Palace[26] and West Ham United.[27]

On 2 March 2016, and after a 1–0 loss away to Stoke City, he was involved in a confrontation with Newcastle supporters. Intending to applaud the travelling supporters, but met with anger instead; he had to be turned away by Jamaal Lascelles.[28][29] On 9 April, Janmaat was substituted in the first half of a 3–1 loss away to Southampton, having sustained a groin injury. In his frustration, he punched a wall and broke two of his fingers, missing the next four matches for Newcastle.[30] Vurnon Anita replaced him in his absence, and as a result, reports linked him away from the club. He returned to the squad for the penultimate match of the season against Aston Villa, but was not brought on.[31] He was named in the final match of the season against Tottenham Hotspur. By this time, the club were already relegated, but managed to beat Tottenham 5–1, with Janmaat assisting the fourth goal and scoring the fifth goal.[32] A picture of a Newcastle supporter giving Janmaat a reversed two-fingered salute, as the Dutchman wheeled away celebrating his goal was widely circulated on social media.[33]


On 24 August 2016, following Newcastle's relegation to the Championship, Janmaat signed for Premier League Watford for a fee of £7.5 million.[34]

International career

Janmaat made his debut for the Netherlands on 7 September 2012, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 home win against Turkey for the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.[35] On 31 May 2014, he was selected by national team manager Louis van Gaal to the final 23-man squad for the World Cup in Brazil.[36] He played his first game in the tournament on 13 June, providing an assist, as Holland thrashed defending champions Spain 5–1.[37] In the third-place playoff match against host nation Brazil, Janmaat came on as a late substitute for Daley Blind and provided the assist for Georginio Wijnaldum as Holland won 3–0.[38]
