Tottenham in discussions of selling Victor Wanyama to Club Brugge for around £11m.
Tottenham is in talks with the Belgian outfit Club Brugge, concerning the transfer of the Kenyan international Victor Wanyama and want to sell the player in the region of £11million to the Belgian before the closure of their transfer window.
It was understood that it’s the same fee Tottenham paid Southampton to sign the player in 2016, though he only had a year left on his contract with the saints, the transfer seems like a genuine bargain then.
Club Brugge want the 28-year-old before their transfer window gets shut in September 2nd, they are prepared to spend money on the transfer after selling striker Wesley and midfielder Marvelous Nakamba to Aston Villa during the Premier League transfer window for a combined £33m.
He still has two years left on his contract with Tottenham and the club expect to recoup the money they contracted him, Wanyama has lost favour in the sights of his manager Mauricio Pochettino’s due to his struggle with injuries that had seized him playing time.
It’s still unknown yet whether Brugge would like to sign Wanyama on a permanent basis or take him on loan with an obligation to buy as negotiations proceed.
Spurs will probably be seeking a fee that surpasses what they paid the saints in 2016 for the player.
Spurs have just smashed their transfer record to sign Tanguy Ndombele, which accelerates the exit of Wanyama further from the club.
Wanyama has proved to be an excellent holding midfielder in the past, and if injuries weren’t a problem the club should be giving their best to prevent him from leaving the White Hart Lane.
Wanyama scored a screamer that bags him the goal of the month last year in a Premier League game against Liverpool.
However, Spurs plan to refinance approximately £400m of their stadium liability through bonds allotted via a private organisation provided by Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML).
Tottenham originally collects £400m five-year loan from BAML, Goldman Sachs and HSBC in 2017 to fund the construction of their brand-new £1billion stadium.
Last year, the club validated that the loan had risen to £637m.
The bonds will have maturities ranging from 15 to 30 years and will be targeted at institutional investors in the United States, increasing the debt’s maturity profile.
