French club Amiens have made a last minute move for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama, according to the London Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick.
Earlier on Friday we relayed quotes from Jose Mourinho, who revealed Wanyama will be in his plans if he stays put on deadline day. Those comments followed a report from the Mirror that claimed Celtic had entered talks with Spurs over a deal for Wanyama, but that move appears to be dead.
However, with just an hour to go until the transfer window shuts at the time of writing, Dan Kilpatrick has suggested Wanyama could still leave with Amiens coming in for the Kenyan at the last minute.
Having fallen behind a number of other midfielders in the pecking order, it would probably be wise for Wanyama to leave now, otherwise it’s unlikely he will play any more football until next season.
Gedson Fernandes’ arrival on loan from Benfica has made it even more difficult for Wanyama to break into the team, so it wouldn’t surprise us at all to see the 28-year-old depart in the very near future.
