Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has travelled to Belgium and is set to complete his move to Club Brugge, according to the Daily Mail.
Last week, we relayed reports suggesting Wanyama was in initial talks with Brugge over a move to the club after three years at Spurs. He scored seven goals in 93 appearances for the Londoners but is yet to be used by Mauricio Pochettino this season.
The Tottenham boss admitted Wanyama “went backwards” after a serious knee injury, implying the Kenyan is no longer part of his first-team plans.
And after the president of Turkish outfit Trabzonspor – another club linked with Wanyama this summer – dismissed speculation he was interested in signing the player, it now appears Brugge have won the race for his signature.
The Mail claims Wanyama is due at the club on Monday to finalise his transfer, which is said to be valued at around £13.6 million. As usual, it looks like Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will get a return on his initial investment.
Hopefully his knee issues do not cause problems in the medical so that he can revive his career as soon as possible.
