Having featured somewhat regularly on the summer transfer rumour mill, Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama was recently said to be available on deadline day as a loan capture for any potential suitors.
That led to obvious links of a return to Celtic, but of course, the Kenyan international remains with us. Reports over in Belgium this week have suggested that Club Brugge are now interested in doing a deal for the 28-year-old.
Outlet Walfoot have recently suggested that having tracked Wanyama this summer, their move is dependent on Champions League qualification and they faced LASK on Tuesday evening.
The report suggests that qualifying through the Play-Off round would obviously bolster their transfer budgets and with the European window still open, and with them being able to boast CL football, they will then feel confident of their chances of getting Wanyama in on a loan spell.
Well, Brugge won last night so now we’ll see what happens, but to be honest I’m not so sure their CL campaign would make that much of a difference when it came to the financials, as having splashed out a reported £6.4million on Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet, they have money to burn given the circa £30million+ deal they did with Aston Villa for Wesley Moraes and Marvelous Nakamba over the summer.
If they wanted a permanent deal (or loan to buy) I’d imagine it was well within their remit if Wanyama was sensible with wages.
