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.

Intending to applaud the travelling supporters, but met with anger instead; he had to be turned away by Jamaal Lascelles. 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. 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. 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.
