Victor Wanyama, the Harambee Stars captain from Kenya is geared up towards getting back to Belgium against the backdrop of reports showing that the player’s representatives are currently negotiating his probable move to Club Brugge.
It was reported by a number of sources on Thursday that the Kenyan player is determined to leave Spurs having spent there three years. Some sources ascertain that the transfer is 70% agreed.
Spurs are expected to shell out up to Sh1 billion for the Kenyan player aged 28.
Moreover, an extra Sh500m could also be paid to the English side, based on the number of plays as well as the success he contributes to the Belgium side on the pitch and in particular in the Uefa Champions League within his contract.
The given amount represents the most impressive transfer fee in Kenyan football. It has already attracted the attention of the Kenyan cabinet, Football Kenya Federation as well as other stakeholders that invest in the youth via sports.
In 2015, the Kenyan player abandoned Southampton in favor of Tottenham. However, after an impressive beginning. However, after a promising start of his football career in the English club, Victor disappeared due to a number of niggling traumas as well as fitness concerns. In general, for the last two seasons, the player had to miss approximately half of the club’s plays.
