Tottenham have announced the Sh1.4 Billion signing of Victor Wanyama from Southampton as the midfielder links up again with former manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Wanyama was signed from Celtic in July 2013 but had rejected offers for a new deal and would have been able to leave Southampton on a free transfer at the end of next season.
The box-to-box midfielder took to his official website to thank Southampton fans. He said: ‘I write to you with a heavy heart to announce that I will be leaving Southampton Football Club.
‘As you can imagine it is very emotional for me to say goodbye to the club that gave me the chance to be the first Kenyan to play in Premier League.
‘You guys have always been there to lift us up when we were down, and to celebrate with us when we were playing well. I feel really proud that I got the opportunity to wear the Southampton shirt.’
Spurs first expressed an interest in Wanyama – who turns 25 on Saturday – last summer but Saints held firm and were rewarded, as he played a key role in leading the team to a sixth-placed finish.
Wanyama revealed this week he was looking forward to a ‘new dawn’ in his career at Tottenham after claiming he had passed a medical.
‘I am indeed elated at passing my medicals at Tottenham. It is a new dawn in my career and I believe I will give my best for my new team,’ Wanyama said in an interview with African football website Soka25east.
‘I want to thank Southampton management and fans for the exceptional time we had together. I will always have a fond place for them in my heart.’

Kenyan football player based in England Victor Wanyama has won the presidential award by his team Southampton.
Southampton Football Club held their awards ceremony on Wednesday night.

Wanyama took home the President’s Choice Award, while Targett was named winner of the Young Player of the Season Award, sponsored by Hampshire Collegiate School. The hotly-contested Vision Accendo Goal of the Season Award was won by Long for his goal against Aston Villa.
The defender started all but one of Southampton’s games in the Premier League, amassing 44 appearances in total for Ronald Koeman’s side this season.

British Police Tuesday recovered Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama’s car in London at around 11am Kenyan time (9am UK time), hours after the Sh8 million-worth Range Rover SUV was stolen alongside the player’s personal belongings at his home in Winchester.
Wanyama was not at his five bed-roomed house, situated some 125km away from London at the time of the incident, as he was featuring for his team – Southampton FC – in Monday night’s 1-1 draw against Aston Villa at Villa Park in Birmingham, some 235km away.
“My heart skipped a beat when I noticed the car missing at the parking lot. But more shock awaited me when I accessed the house. They (burgers) accessed the house through my garden at the backyard, they broke the backwindow and came in.” Wanyama told Daily Nation.
According to Daily Mail, a shirt from Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta, many of his Celtic mementos and designer clothes and more than 20 pairs of shoes were among the items taken alongside, furniture, television sets and electrical items.
Wanyama, 23, lives in a small housing complex and police are understood to be surprised that neighbours were not alerted by the noise of the burglars.
Burglars broke into Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama’s house in England on Monday night and stole property worth millions of shillings, including his Range Rover sport utility vehicle.
The intruders are believed to have taken advantage of the player’s absence at the time, as he was away on club (Southampton FC) duty. Wanyama featured against Aston Villa as they drew 1-1.
A close family member of Wanyama confirmed that among the items stolen during the robbery were his Range Rover worth about Sh8 million, three television sets and other electronics.
The thieves also made away with his shoes, designers clothes and households good. His house was ransacked upside down since the burglars had all the time on earth. Wanyama takes home a net salary of Sh15 million per month making him one of the highest paid person in Kenya.
Victor Wanyama has been named the English Premier League’s African player of the month for September.
The Southampton FC midfielder and Kenyan captain who joined the Saints last season from Scottish champions Celtic was up against West Ham’s Diafro Sakho, Mohamed Diame the ex-West Ham player who now plies his trade with Hull City and Nigeria’s Victor Moses who is on loan from Chelsea at Stoke City.
The competition was tough as Sakho scored in every game he played in September. Wanyama scored his first Premier League goal when his team played against Swansea becoming the first Kenyan goalscorer in the Premier League.
The nominations were done by a combination of fans voting as well as the New African Soccer technical panel.
Voting was done through twitter and Facebook by football supporters from the continent and beyond.
The award is given to African players who play in the English Premier League.
