Wanyama: Club Brugge will get other options if deal falls through – Philippe Clement


The Belgian tactician reveals interest in the Kenyan captain but says they will go for another signing if the transfer deal hits a snag

Club Brugge manager Philippe Clement has talked highly of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama amid a rumoured transfer move.

After spending three years at the North London club, reports have indicated the 28-year-old has already agreed to terms to sign for the Belgian side before the European transfer window shuts, after dropping down the pecking order at Spurs.

Speaking to journalists ahead of Wednesday’s Uefa Champions League game against Austria’s LASK, Clement said his side are keen to sign the Kenyan player and also hinted he has other options in the event Wanyama’s deal falls through.

“[Wanyama] is a boy whose qualities we know well and the mentality,” Clement told reporters.

“But we don’t put all our eggs in one basket. For the rest, we remain alert on the transfer market.”

The Harambee Stars captain has also attracted interest from Italian side Bologna and a number of other clubs, but Tottenham do not want to let him go out on loan.

Wanyama has also been linked with possible moves to Inter Milan, Wolves, West Ham, Fenerbeche and Galatasaray in the current transfer window.

Wanyama hardly featured for Spurs last season, with injuries playing their part, and he is yet to turn out this term for the Uefa Champions League runners-up.
