Former Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama has revealed that he will announce over the next few days what his plans are for the future after failing to land a January transfer move and being deemed surplus to requirements at Tottenham Hotspur according to The Daily Record.
Wanyama’s brother, Harry, revealed in an interview with People Daily (via The Daily Record) that the Spurs midfielder’s agent will announce in the coming days where his future lies after qualifying and attaining British citizenship:
“It’s a normal thing for a footballer to get British citizenship after playing or staying in the country for at least five years.”
“Victor’s agent Ivan Modia will announce whether he will be leaving Spurs or not and which club. He is to make the announcement in two or three days.”
There had been speculation in January that he was set to head back up north of the border but the Hoops secured the signing of Ismaila Soro and the deal appeared to be dead in the water but with Fraser Forster already showing that going back with an ex can be a good thing, the Kenyan international may yet be persuaded to return to his old stomping ground.
Would you take Wanyama back?
At 29-years-old there are plenty miles left on the clock – if he can stay injury free – however, he has missed a lot of football over the last few seasons and he will either be determined to make up for lost time or his body will no longer be able to cope with the demands of playing for a club that regularly has 60 games a season, if only every player was as resilient as Callum McGregor.
Although it may seem a distant hope, fans of the Hoops will still keep an eye out for Wanyama’s announcement knowing the qualities that he could bring to a squad hoping to secure an historic 10-in-a-row.
