Tottenham Hotspur have completed the £11m signing of Kenya midfielder Victor Wanyama on a five-year deal, the club announced on Thursday evening.

The 24-year-old will reunite with former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino at White Hart Lane.


Wanyma joined the Saints from Celtic for a reported £12.5m three years ago, going on to score four goals in 94 appearances across all competitions for the club.

The former SPL Young Player of the Year, who rejected a new deal to remain at St. Mary's, issued a letter to the Southampton fans which has since been published on his website:

"It is very emotional for me to say goodbye to the club that gave me the chance to be the first Kenyan to play in Premier League.

"I will never forget my time in Southampton Football Club, I will keep club forever in my heart."

The Kenya international made his debut for the Harambee Stars as a 15-year-old and is currently the captain of the national team.
