Following the likes of Nathaniel Clyne to Liverpool and Luke Shaw to Manchester United, it’s now stated Victor Wanyama has rejected a new contract as he looks to force a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Kenyan international was heavily linked to Spurs in the summer, but a move never materialised, and Wanyama stated earlier this week that he’s put that behind him and is now focused on his Saints career.
That doesn’t appear to be the case though, as a source sparked reports of a January move when speaking to The Sun.
“It’s not in Victor’s interests to sign an extension. He loved working with Mauricio and would still like the move to happen.”
Our Saints regulars are furious if this is indeed the case, as they forgave the player just days ago when he showed maturity in his comments. However, it appears the cat is now out of the bag.
Southampton fans, should you sell Wanyama in January? Let us know in the comments!
