Victor Wanyama has reportedly asked his agent to find the midfielder a new club before the closure of the European transfer window.

Football Insider report that the Kenyan international has his sights set on a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after significantly falling down the midfield pecking order at the club, with Mauricio Pochettino breaking the club’s transfer record to sign Lyon star Tanguy Ndombele this summer.

The report also claims that it likely Wanyama will depart north London on a loan-deal, with clubs not 100% certain the midfielder can stay fit for an entire season following multiple injury problems with Spurs over the past few years.

Wanyama, who has a Transfermarkt valuation of £18m, has gradually seen his playing time at Spurs decrease as the seasons with the north London have progressed, with the former Southampton powerhouse playing just 13 Premier League games in the 2018/19 campaign.

Despite a lack of first-team appearances last season, 22 in total as numbers from Transfermarkt show, Wanyama still has plenty of suitors who are reportedly interested in acquiring his services before the closure of the transfer window.

Voetbal Primeur report that Club Brugge are interested in Wanyama as the Belgian side continue their search for a replacement for now-Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba, who joined the newly-promoted Premier League side this summer, whereas Goal also claim that the Tottenham enforcer could be off to Turkey.

Wanyama made it to the bench for Spurs in their opening game of the season against Villa, however, the Kenyan remained an unused substitute during the game, and the former Celtic star was not featured at all in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Manchester City, being left out of the 18-man squad entirely by Pochettino.
