The January transfer window is now closed and Victor Wanyama remains a Tottenham Hotspur player for the time being.
It was rumoured that the midfielder was close to making a transfer away from White Hart Lane late on deadline day, but such a move never materialised (Sun).
This comes as Wanyama has found himself falling down the pecking order at Spurs, mainly due to the acquisitions of Gedson Fernandes and Tanguy Ndombele, as well as the emergence of Oliver Skipp and Harry Winks.
Once you tie Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Giovani Lo Celso, and Moussa Sissoko into the mix, Wanyama finds a blockade of talent in front of him.
The Kenyan has only appeared once under Jose Mourinho despite being a regular for Tottenham back in 2017 under Pochettino.
Football Insider reported today that Spurs were in talks to terminate Wanyama’s contract, but The Athletic reported Charlie Eccleshare has now refuted those claims.
So that’s it – no striker coming in, + no more outgoings (talk of Wanyama’s contract being terminated wide of the mark, I’m told).
Interesting few months coming up for #THFC.

Spurs Web Opinion:
Wanyama deserves more respect than that for what he has done for Tottenham. Let him train and fight for his place, then attempt to provide him with a way out in the summer.
