After sealing the move to Aston Villa, Kenya skipper Victor Wanyama has welcomed Mbwana Samatta to the English Premier League.
Aston Villa completed a £10m deal for Genk striker Mbwana Samatta on a four-and-half-year contract but is subject to a work permit and international clearance being granted.
The Tanzania international scored 10 goals for Genk in all competitions this season including a goal at Anfield against Liverpool in the Champions League.
The 27-year-old will be the first Tanzanian to play in the Premier League but he won't be available for Villa's home match against Watford on Tuesday.
The two stars clashed at the 2019 African Cup of Nations as Kenya beat Tanzania 3-2 in the group stages of the tournament.
Wanyama took to Twitter to congratulate and welcome Samatta to the Premier League, "Congratulations brother and welcome to the @premierleague wish you all the best as you start your new adventure."
