Reports in London are claiming that Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a 12m pound fee (Kshs 1.5B) with Belgian side Club Brugge for the transfer of Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama who has yet to feature for Spurs this season.
Wanyama’s future has been the subject of speculation for close to a year now due to his gradual drop in the pecking order at the North London club which has been heavily brought about by persistent injuries.
The deal will see Spurs recoup the 11m pounds they had paid Southampon for Wanyama’s services back in 2013.
If the move is ratified, it will see the defensive midfielder, who is the first East African to feature in the prestigious English Premier League, return to the country where his star first started to shine.
Wanyama spent three years in the Belgian Pro-League with now defunct Germinal Beerschot between 2008 and 2011, a tenure that led to him receiving rave reviews and finally sealing a move to Celtic FC.
Brugge are the second most successful club in Belgium with 15 league titles to their name. They have also made it to this season’s UEFA Champions League group stages and have been pooled alongside Real Madrid, Paris St Germain and Galatasaray in Group A.
