Tottenham new boy Wanyama excited about Alderweireld reunion

Victor Wanyama is looking forward to again playing alongside Toby Alderweireld.

The pair will link up at Tottenham after Wanyama made the move from Southampton for £11million last week and the Kenyan midfielder is excited to call the Belgian defender a teammate once more after starring together at St Mary's in 2014/15.

"I know Toby, I've played with him before and he's really a good player and also a good guy off the pitch," Wanyama said of the former Atletico Madrid centre-back on Tottenham's official website.

"It's obviously important for the team to have a player like Toby. He's intelligent and he's always ahead of the opponents so it's really good to have a player like him in the side and I'm delighted to link up with him again.

"We have a good relationship too. We are always talking on the field and I enjoy it a lot when I play in the same team as Toby."
