Victor Wanyama has confirmed that he’s completed his medical ahead of an £11m move to Tottenham Hotspur from Southampton this summer, according to the Mirror.
The 24-year-old made his name at Celtic before joining Southampton in 2013 and he’s continued to build his reputation on the south coast with some excellent performances at the heart of midfield.
However, Wanyama has been strongly linked with a move away from St Mary’s in recent months as he has just one year remaining on his contract and has refused to sign a new deal.
Tottenham emerged as the front-runners for his signature with the Mirror claiming that the Kenyan international rejected the advances of champions Leicester in favour of a move to White Hart Lane.
The newspaper states that the North Londoners have agreed an £11m deal with Southampton and it looks like Wanyama is now on the verge of a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino.
The midfielder has been quoted by the Mirror as saying that he is ‘elated’ to have completed his medical tests with Tottenham and is looking forward to starting a new chapter in his career:
“I am indeed elated at passing my medicals at Tottenham,” Wanyama said
“It is a new dawn in my career and I believe I will give my best for my new team.”
The newspaper claims that Wanyama is set to sign a four-year deal with Spurs while Celtic are also set to earn a £1.1m windfall due to a 10 per cent sell-on clause they agreed when they sold the midfielder three years ago.
Wanyama is a powerful centre-midfielder who will offer competition to Eric Dier for the defensive role in the middle of the park when he officially completes his move to White Hart Lane.

He’ll also give Pochettino the option to play him alongside Dier in what would be a rock solid base in midfield for tough games against top opposition, so I think he’ll prove to be an excellent signing for the London club.
