With the additions of Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso in the summer, Tottenham now boast of an embarrassment of riches in the central midfield area with the likes of Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, and Victor Wanyama still at the club.

It appears that Wanyama is the odd one out and has been deemed surplus to requirements by Mauricio Pochettino (Daily Mail).

The midfielder was reported to be close to a move to Belgian side Club Brugge, with Tottenham said to have agreed on a fee of around €13 million for the 28-year-old (Het Nieuwsblad).

However, Belgian news outlet HLN are now reporting that the deal has fallen through and that Club Brugge have given up their hopes of resurrecting the deal before the deadline.

It is claimed that they will now pursue FC Basel’s Eder Balanta as an alternative for Wanyama.

With the transfer window closing for Club Brugge later today, it looks like the Kenyan international will now remain in North London until January at least.

It is sad to see how Wanyama’s Spurs career has petered out given how brilliant he was during his first season at the club. However, it looks like injuries have taken their toll on the Kenyan and it seems unlikely that he will be able to perform at that level again.
