Twitter reacts to Victor Wanyama joining Montreal Impact
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama is set to join MLS side Montreal Impact after Spurs agreed on a deal with the Canadian outfit, according to the BBC.
The midfielder has fallen down the pecking order and has made just four appearances this season, completing the 90 minutes just once in Spurs’ Carabao Cup clash against Colchester United.
Wanyama is the first Kenyan international to play for Tottenham Hotspur. The 28-year-old made the move to North London from Southampton in 2016. He went on to make 97 appearances for Spurs and scored seven goals and one assist in his three and a half years at the club.
He enjoyed a stellar debut season as he made 47 appearances, scoring five times and assisting once. He never went on to score many goals for us but his screamer against Liverpool at Anfield will live long in the fans’ minds.
Injuries led to Wanyama missing around 47 games for Tottenham and he never could regain his place in the team.
He will welcome the move to the MLS where he will now link up with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry at Montreal Impact. The Canadians started their MLS season with a win last weekend.
Montreal only finished ninth in the Eastern Conference last season, missing out on the playoff birth. Wanyama will join up with former Spurs youth product Luis Binks who joined the club in February.
The midfielder has won 60 caps for the Kenyan national team and has scored seven times for his country. Wanyama’s new club have won the Canadian championship four times and finished as the runner-up in the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League.
Tottenham fans took to Twitter to react to this transfer news and wished the midfielder the best. A number of fans reminisced the player’s goal against Liverpool. We take a look at some of the tweets below.

Was absolutely incredible in the 16/17 season, but injuries fucked him over. Didn't have the legs anymore. Good luck Kenyan King!
