Tottenham have already strengthened their midfield considerably with the acquisition of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and Jack Clarke from Leeds, and recent reports indicate that more midfielders are expected to arrive before the close of the transfer window (Mirror).

This leaves Spurs with an embracement of riches in central midfield with the likes of Moussa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Victor Wanyama, Eric Dier and Oliver Skipp already at the club.

It has been reported that Wanyama is the most likely out of the above list to be sold this summer (Daily Mail). However, the Kenyan international recently reiterated his intention to stay at the club but admitted that anything can happen before the close of the transfer window (ESPN).

Now, Turkish newspaper Fotomac (via Sport Witness) have reported that Fenerbahce are close to signing the Spurs midfielder on a season-long loan deal.

Damien Comolli currently serves as Fenerbahce’s Sporting Director and it is suggested that he is using his personal contacts with Tottenham to secure Wanyama’s signature ahead of Galatasaray, who are also claimed to be interested in him.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is clear that at least one of the central midfielders in the squad need to be moved out this summer and we at Spurs Web believe Wanyama is the most likely one to leave. A loan deal makes sense for Tottenham as if the 28-year-old gets regular game time with the Turkish club, his value has the potential to increase.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Seems strange since Wanyama will be eligible for a British passport and could help our squad list and foreign players etc. These are things you should be aware of.

  2. Since when do Spurs loan out their mature players? Never. Levy will SELL and he will offload this summer as his value is higher this summer than it will be next year. A loan makes no sense for Spurs unless it includes a must buy next summer clause it the deal. Now a loan with a must buy option does make sense.
