The deal to sign Victor Wanyama seems to be off, with the player having left to join the Kenyan squad on international duty.

Many Spurs fans are complaining about Southampton’s refusal to do business with us, but over the past two windows we have waited until they had already sold a number of players before making a move. Considering that Mauricio Pochettino and latterly Paul Mitchell know the personnel at the club very well, leaving things to such a late stage is a puzzling tactic.
With Axel also unlikely to move, the club are said to have turned their attention towards Cheick Tiote of Newcastle.

Once highly-rated, Tiote’s stock has fallen in recent seasons. Things are starting to look very desperate now.
