Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has been speaking publicly for the first time since his summer move to Club Brugge fell through.
The 28-year-old was on the verge of joining the Belgian outfit in a £13m deal that had been agreed, but the transfer collapsed at the last minute and Wanyama ended up remaining a Tottenham player past the European transfer window deadline on 1 September.
Since then, Wanyama has struggled for minutes, often being left out of Mauricio Pochettino’s matchday squads and has featured just twice in the Premier League for Spurs this term – with his only start coming in the Carabao Cup humiliation at Colchester United last month.
We reported last week that the Kenyan international is one of a host of players that could be offloaded during the January window and although this particular move didn’t materialise, Wanyama is determined to get his head down and continue working hard.
“For me, I am a professional player and sometimes you have to wait until everything is done,” Wanyama said in an interview with All Africa.
“Things were good but unfortunately the transfer didn’t happen. But I have to put my head down and work hard in training to be back on top form. I will keep working and wait for my chance in the team,” stated the midfield powerhouse.”
