Victor Wanyama poised to collect British passport

Harambee Stars and Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama is poised to collect his British passport over the coming weeks.

According to Sportsmail, the 28-year-old Kenya international put off a proposed move abroad last year to ensure he qualified for his passport after residing in the UK for over six years.

There have been rumors that the player is considering his stay with Spurs this summer after the arrival of French midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Ligue One side Lyon.


Though his last season was blighted by a niggling knee injury, Wanyama finished the campaign strongly and played three games in nine days for Kenya in the African Cup of Nations, completing 90 minutes in each.

Sportsmail reports that Tottenham is open to offers for Wanyama as well as the likes of Vincent Janssen, Kieran Tripper, Danny Rose and Serge Aurier.

There has been limited interest from Premier League clubs but with European transfer windows open longer than the UK, Wanyama could yet move abroad later next month.
