“Such a shame” – Some Spurs fans react as midfielder edges close to leaving

Tottenham Hotspur have strengthened their central midfield area considerably with the acquisition of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon, and based on reports in the press they are not quite done just yet.

The club have also been linked with moves for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso and Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes (Evening Standard).

If Spurs land even one of the two, they will have an embarrassment of riches in central midfield with the likes of Harry Winks, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, and Oliver Skipp already at the club.

It looks like the club have decided that Wanyama is the one to move on as the Kenyan international has been linked with moves to Bournemouth as well as Monaco in recent days (The Guardian’s Ed Aarons).

Some Spurs fans on social media suggested that moving Wanyama on is the right thing to do but expressed their disappointment that things didn’t work out at the club for the 28-year-old.

Like these fans, we at Spurs Web are also saddened by how Wanyama’s Tottenham career has played out particularly after the promise he showed in his first season at the club. If not for his injuries, the Kenyan could have been a key part of Pochettino’s set up over the last two years.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. People are so premature. Wanyama is eligible as a British citizen and can free up some place on our squad list. Why are people not taking that into consideration before jumping the gun!? Lunacy! Yourself included.

  2. Who says Victor is leaving? In case you hadn’t noticed, he’s been injured for the majority of last year and who knows, he could return with a bang. Stop with cut and paste nonsense as it usually turns out to be made up bullshit by the nonces masquerading as football journalists that gathers pace through lazy ignorant blogs.
