Tottenham has announced on Twitter that the Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama has moved on a free transfer to Montreal Impact of Major League Soccer.
Wanyama spent four seasons with the club, but his playing time significantly decreased after the first two.
The transfer windows in Europe shut at the beginning of February, but MLS has only just started its season, and teams can still make transfers until May 5th.
Injuries derailed Wanyama’s career in North London after it had gotten off to such a promising start.
He had a bit of a reputation as a bruiser before coming to White Hart Lane, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth.
Wanyama did his part to slam the door shut on opposing attacks, but he also proved to be a capable passer and even a capable finisher.
And when he scored, it always happened to be when Spurs needed it most. We’ll always remember his winner on his debut against Crystal Palace, his goal in the final game at White Hart Lane, and, of course, we will never forget his wonder goal at Anfield. That net is still rattling.
Wanyama was almost sold during the January window, and in the last summer window, but rumored moves to France and Belgium and Germany never materialized.
