Wanyama makes Spurs Champions League squad

After being heavily linked with a move away from Tottenham Hotspur in the recently shut transfer window, Kenyan international Victor Wanyama has found his way back in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s plans, as he is part of the team’s UEFA Champions League squad released on Wednesday 4 September.

All through the month of August, Wanyama was linked with a move to Belgium, to join Club Brugge, while there was also interest from Celtic FC in Scotland and AS Monaco in France.

Collapsed late

The move that seemed more probable – to Club Brugge – collapsed late on, that coming when Pochettino had already declared the midfielder was surplus to requirement.

The Argentine however seems to have softened his stance and Wanyama is part of the 25 – man Team A list for the competition. He makes it there alongside Ivorian Serge Aurier, who also was linked with a move away from the club.

In the competition, Spurs are drawn in group B alongside Bayern Munich, Olympiakos and Red Star Belgrade and begin their campaign away at Olympiakos on September 18.
