Spurs transfer news: Brugge manager hints at other options should Wanyama deal fail
Victor Wanyama has been linked with a move to Belgian side Club Brugge.
The Belgians have already signed one former Premier League star in Simon Mignolet, and it seems likely that Wanyama will also head there (h/t Daily Mail).
The Kenyan midfielder has struggled for fitness over the past two seasons and it makes sense for him to find a new club.
Brugge manager Philippe Clement was speaking ahead of their Champions League qualifier in midweek and provided an update on Wanyama.
The manager claimed that there could be other options for the club should they fail to land Wanyama, but praised the 28-year-old Tottenham midfielder.
The translated tweet said:
“Wanyama is a boy whose qualities we know well and the mentality. But we don’t put all our eggs in one basket. For the rest, we remain alert on the transfer market.”
Football.london also quoted Het Nieuwsblad, where the manager claimed it was also Tottenham’s decision on Wanyama.
“We know his quality and mentality. Whether or not he comes is not only in his hands, but also in Tottenham’s hands.”
A good move for Wanyama
Moving to the Belgian league would be a good move for Wanyama as the game isn’t as fast-paced or tough on the body as the Premier League is. However, Wanyama’s injury-record hasn’t been great and it will be interesting to see when the deal goes through.
The Kenya star was great after joining Spurs from Southampton, but we rarely got to see the best of him.
Losing Wanyama would not be much of a blow at the moment as we have several options to field in the middle of the park.

Tanguy Ndombele has been great since joining us, while we have Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks who can play in a deeper role.
