Wanyama joins MLS Club

Midfielder Victor Wanyama has agreed a deal to join MLS side Montreal Impact, now managed by Thierry Henry, bringing an end to his Tottenham career.

The 28 year old Kenyan international had found himself marginalised at Spurs this season only making four appearances, with is only start being the humiliating Carabao Cup defeat at Colchester United.

He joined Tottenham from Southampton in June 2016 and was a key part of the side which, the following season, ended second to Chelsea in the league under Mauricio Pochettino.

However, he was then hit with a series of knee injuries, limiting his number of subsequent appearances for the club.

Last summer, he was on the verge of a £13.6 million move to Club Bruges, but the deal collapsed before transfer deadline day.   

Now he is joining up with Impact who won their first game of the MLS season on Saturday, beating the New England Revolution.

A statement on the Tottenham Hotspur website said “We wish Victor well for the future”.
