Tottenham gave Marseille green light to sign Victor Wanyama but French club pulled the plug

MARSEILLE snubbed a £7million deadline swoop for Tottenham’s unsettled midfielder Victor Waynama. That’s according to French TV station RMC Sport after Club Brugge target Wanyama missed out on a loan switch to Celtic. Kenya skipper Wanyama is yet to play for Spurs this season after their £65m club record signing of Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele over […]

Why Victor Wanyama’s transfer to Club Brugge fell through

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via It was a combination of things, including fear of flying and Daniel Levy. The European transfer window is now closed, and improbably Victor Wanyama is still a Tottenham Hotspur player. But why? It sure looked as though a deal was in place that would send him to Belgium as a member of Champions League side Club Brugge. In fact, reporting suggested that not only had the clubs agreed on a £12m transfer (Brugge’s record transfer signing), but Wanyama had also agreed personal terms. So what happened? Sport Witness tried to figure it...
Report: Wanyama set to stay after Club Brugge talks break down

Report: Wanyama set to stay after Club Brugge talks break down

Photo by Clive Brunskill/ The European transfer window closes today. For a while, it looked like at least three Tottenham Hotspur players were set to leave the club before the close of today’s European transfer window. Now, it looks like it might be just one. Writing in the Evening Standard, Dan Kilpatrick confirms the unlikeliness of Christian Eriksen’s departure from Tottenham Hotspur before the end of the day today, and also said fullback Serge Aurier was unlikely to leave after the club was unable to find any bidders. Victor Wanyama looked set for a move as soon as last Friday...

Tottenham ‘open door’ for Celtic to sign out-of-favour Victor Wanyama on loan transfer deal

VICTOR WANYAMA could return to Celtic on loan, according to reports. Tottenham are open to considering loan offers for the out-of-favour midfielder if no permanent move can be agreed. Wanyama had been linked with a £13m transfer to Club Brugge but sources have suggested the deal is unlikely to go through. Now the Daily Record […]

Report: Wanyama to Brugge transfer to be completed by Friday

Report: Wanyama to Brugge transfer to be completed by Friday

Photo credit should read DIANE FALCONER/AFP/ It hasn’t happened yet, but all parties appear to want it to. It’s Thursday and still no word about Victor Wanyama’s transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to Club Brugge, despite everything seemingly pointing to a deal happening before the close of the transfer window. The last we had heard, Wanyama was set to travel to Belgium for a physical and to conclude the transfer early this week, but a report from a Belgian paper is saying that there’s been a minor hang-up that has delayed things. According to Het Nieuwsblad (via Sport Witness), the...

Report: Wanyama agrees terms with Brugge, transfer expected shortly

Photo by Jon Bromley/MI News/NurPhoto via It’s not the most solid of sources, but it would make a lot of sense. We’ve been monitoring the potential transfer of Victor Wanyama from Tottenham Hotspur to Club Brugge, and it appears to be very close to completion. While there have been some articles that suggested that Vic’s old club Celtic were making a late approach, a report this morning from Football Insider suggests that the Belgian club has won the day, and that Vic has agreed personal terms to go along with the clubs’ transfer agreement. The report states that Vic has agreed...

Wanyama targeted by Monaco as Brugge deal nears completion

Wanyama targeted by Monaco as Brugge deal nears completion

Photo credit should read OSCAR DEL POZO/AFP/ Monaco is looking at Wanyama in case a deal for Franck Kessie falls through. Though a move to Belgian side Club Brugge looks the most likely for Victor Wanyama, AS Monaco has emerged as a late suitor with ten days to go in the European transfer window. According to a report out of France, Monaco has decided on a late pursuit for Wanyama. The club has also been linked to AC Milan’s Franck Kessie and Southampton’s Mario Lemina, but has turned to Wanyama in its search of a midfielder. The report says Monaco has already contacted Tottenham...

Reports: Tottenham & Club Brugge just €2m apart in Victor Wanyama’s valuation

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via This one is probably gonna happen, folks. You might want to start saying your goodbyes to Big Vic, or at least begin putting yourself in that mental space. There are numerous reports coming out of the Netherlands that suggest that a deal is very close to take Victor Wanyama from Tottenham Hotspur to Club Brugge. Yesterday, we wrote on an article that suggested Spurs were asking for as much as £17m for the Kenyan international defensive midfielder. That’s a lot of money for a Belgian club with much fewer resources. However, a...

Spurs set to offload Wanyama and Nkoudou before European transfer window shuts

VICTOR WANYAMA and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou are set to leave Tottenham in the final days of the European transfer window. Reports indicate the duo are close to striking deals with clubs on the continent – and may not be the only Spurs players on the way out. Outcast winger Nkoudou has actually been drafted back into […]

Tottenham’s Victor Wanyama emerges as late Club Brugge transfer target

Photo by Tottenham Hotspur FC/Tottenham Hotspur FC via But Spurs are asking for a not-insignificant amount of money for Big Vic. Victor Wanyama has been one of Tottenham Hotspur’s steady and solid club servants over the past number of years, but as the Kenyan defensive midfielder gets older, his minutes and impact have decreased. It is then perhaps unsurprising that he has been the subject of persistent, if quiet, transfer speculation all summer. And now those rumors are starting to heat up as the European transfer window deadline starts to near. The latest, and perhaps biggest, rumor...
