Jose Mourinho gives an update on Victor Wanyama's future

Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has had a torrid season with many urging the former Celtic man to make a move this January after being sidelined by manager Jose Mourinho.

The Spurs midfielder last outing for Spurs came in December when his team were involved against Bayern Munich in a dead rubber tie of the UEFA Champions League.

Despite a series of injuries to first-team players, Mourinho once again omitted Wanyama from his squad that took on Middleborough in the FA Cup on Tuesday.

Prior to the match, Mourinho was asked about Wanyama and he said: “He’s our player. If he wants to leave or not, he didn’t tell me, we didn’t discuss. We are calm about it. Good professional. That’s it.”

Club Brugge

Wanyama was close to joining Belgium side Club Brugge in the last summer but a deal fell through in the last minutes. This January, Wanyama is once again being linked with a move to Celtic but he has remained coy over his future.

Apart from Celtic, Italy tabloids had last week reported that Spurs were ready to offer AC Milan money plus defender Juan Foyth and Wanyama to sign striker Krzysztof Piatek this January.

Wanyama started his career with Belgian Side Germinal Beerschot AC in 2009 before moving Celtic two years later.  He took another two years at Celtic before making an entrance to the Premier League in 2013 where Southampton acquired his services in 2013; he was to join Spurs in 2016.
