The Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern have reacted to reports from the Daily Mirror with absolute raucous delight.
That’s because they claim that the North London giants are set to wrap up an £11m deal for Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama imminently.
The Kenyan bruiser was a target for Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino last summer, though was kept on the South Coast in the hope he would extend his deal at St. Mary’s Stadium.
However, with his deal entering its final 12 months, the former Celtic man is said to be on the verge of making a move to White Hart Lane at long last.
Premier League champions Leicester City were also reported to be interested in luring the 24-year old away from the club, though it appears Pochettino will be reunited with his midfield anchor ahead of his side’s venture into the Champions League.
It is understood that Wanyama will undergo a medical with the club in the coming weeks, becoming the first Saints star to be lured away by their former boss.
Will Wanyama be able to oust either Eric Dier or Mousa Dembele in the starting XI?Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
