WANYAMA TO EARN SH20 MILLION MONTHLY IN POSSIBLE SPURS DEAL
Victor Wanyama’s high profile, multi-billion shilling move from Southampton to London-based Tottenham Hotspurs could be sealed in the next couple of hours.
Wanyama flew out of Nairobi for London on Sunday morning alongside his former manager Ivan Modia to finalize the switch, pending a medical.
Moving to Spurs will see the Kenya captain reunite with his former coach Mauricio Pocchettino, who currently manages Spurs’ first team.
The deal is understood to be in the region of Sh2 billion with Southampton banking almost 80 percent of these proceeds.
The remaining amount will be paid to both his agents and former club Celtic that inserted a “sell on clause” in his contract to receive a percentage of any future transfer.
The impending rigorous medical examination on Monday is considered a formality for the evenutal transfer as Wanyama has been playing in England for the past two seasons.
Personal terms have also been agreed between Wanyama and Tottenham on a four-year deal following weeks of negotiations involving his long time agent, Rob Moore who heads Barcelona-based agency ExtraTime.READ MORE
