Tottenham midfielder Victory Wanyama has been granted permission to discuss a transfer with Galatasaray, according to reports in Turkey.

Wanyama has not played a single minute under Jose Mourinho and had lost his place under Mauricio Pochettino before the change in management. The Kenyan has struggled with knee injuries over the last two-and-a-half years, seeing his fitness and form take serious hits.

Turkish outlet Fanatik claims Spurs have told Galatasaray they are fee to agree terms with Wanyama before the clubs hold talks over a fee. The 28-year-old nearly left north London for Belgian side Club Brugge in the summer, but it now seems his most likely destination is Turkey.

Despite his fine performances in the past, Wanyama will be no great loss to Tottenham. Teenager Oliver Skipp is arguably now ahead of him in the pecking order, so Mourinho will not be concerned about losing the former Celtic and Southampton midfielder.

That said, earlier today we relayed a report suggesting Harry Winks is attracting interest from Manchester City and Manchester United. Spurs can’t afford to lose too many midfielders, but one would think Mourinho will sanction Wanyama’s exit before that of Winks.
