I am focused on Spurs, Wanyama downplays exit rumors

Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has downplayed reports linking him with a move away from Tottenham this summer.

Wanyama’s future at the North London club has been subject to speculation following the arrival of French midfield enforcer, Tanguay Ndombele who is seen as a replacement for the Kenyan international.

Wanyama is however calm amid all the rumors. He says he will resume training with the team this week in readiness for the new campaign.

“I will be back in training with Spurs next week. I do not want to dwell much on speculations because it’s normal for a player to be linked with other clubs when the transfer window is open but I’m not going anywhere,” the Harambee Stars captain said.

“I have not spoken to any other team because my aim is to remain at Spurs and to help my team next season. I have a running contract with Tottenham which I intend to honour.”

Wanyama has been pegged back by injuries for the last two seasons and he says the target is to have an injury free 2019/20 campaign.

“The target is to have an injury free season. I believe in my abilities and I will always work hard to give my best in matches,” he concluded.

Wanyama was part of the Kenya team at the African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
