Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama will stay at English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, his agent Ivan Modia Yanez has said.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to with Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma, with Premier League side West Ham United also interested in the Kenyan.

“There’s no chance that Victor will leave Tottenham in January,” Modia was quoted on Italian portal, LaRoma24.it.

“I’ve not had contact with Roma Director of Football Monchi regarding this issue,” he added.

Spurs splashed $14m (Sh1.4b) to sign Wanyama in July 2016, but a knee problem restricted him to 18 appearances last season and the same injury picked up in preseason hampering his consistency this campaign.

He has a contract until 2021.

Elsewhere, Liverpool striker Divock Origi, son of former Kenyan international striker Mike Okoth, could be sold to struggling Fulham for a reported $19m (Sh2 billion).

The Cottagers are ready to bid for the 23-year-old, who has only made two league appearances this term.
