Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama is focused on regaining his place in the Spurs team after his much-publicized transfer to Belgian side, Club Brugge failed to materialize in the summer.
The defensive midfielder was expected to leave the North London club for Belgium but the deal fell through in the final stages after he reportedly failed to agree with the club on some personal terms and his medical cover.
He is stuck with Spurs and coach Mauricio Pochettino has been utilizing him sparingly mostly as a sub as the side continues to struggle both in the league and the UEFA Champions League. His future at the club remains in doubt and a move away in January remains in the cards. His former club Celtic of Scotland is reportedly keen on signing him.
Speaking for the first time about the failed transfer, Wanyama revealed that he was keen on leaving the club and expressed his disappointment that the move failed to materialize. He, however, added that he is now fully focused on Spurs and wants to be involved with the team again.
“For me, I am a professional player and sometimes you have to wait until everything is done. Things were good but unfortunately, the transfer didn’t happen. But I have to put my head down and work hard in training to be back on top form. I will keep working and wait for my chance in the team,” he told Capital Sports.
Wanyama is currently with the Kenya national team, Harambee Stars preparing for the friendly match against Mozambique that will be played at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani, Nairobi on Sunday, September 13.
