Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama could find himself clubless as his English Premier League (EPL) side Tottenham Hotspur seek all possible avenues to part with the 28-year old.

Wanyama has been frozen from the match squad for quite a while now and the North Londoners are reportedly seeking to offload the midfielder despite the close of the January transfer window.

Spurs were eager to sell the former Southampton man but the deal fell through after suitors Lazio and Celtic were put off by Spurs asking price of KES 1.3 billion.

Sources says that the club and Wanyama’s representatives are in discussions over the possible termination of his contract to allow him to move out as a free agent.

Wanyama has 18 months left on his contract and interested clubs are also said to be concerned with his high wage demands.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, speaking to the media, admitted it was difficult for Wanyama to get playtime, that the club struggled to find suitors for the defensive midfielder but was impressed with his professionalism despite what was going on behind the scenes.

“In my eyes I see more the team going to the future with young Harry Winks, English, young, national team player. I see more the team going in that direction. We also did a great investment on Tanguy Ndombele which sooner or later has to arrive to certain levels of performance. So it is not easy for Victor. But staying with us, if he stays and normally he stays, working hard like he does every day, untouchable on his commitment and professionalism. If he stays with us he is always on my plans,” Mourinho said.

“At this moment we don’t have any offers, we don’t have Victor knocking on our door asking to leave,” he added.

Wanyama has been been linked with a move to other several European clubs such as West Ham, Amiens, Celtic, Aston Villa, Norwich City and Galatasaray.
