Club Brugge to smash wage budget for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama

Club Brugge have stepped up their bid for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Daily Record says the Kenyan midfielder has been offered a huge five-year contract worth £65,000 a week as he moves closer to leaving Tottenham.

Celtic were linked with a move to re-sign their former player in the week they moved to bring back his one-time team-mate Fraser Forster.

Hoops fans were keen to see their former midfielder back at Celtic Park but the money on offer from the Belgian club shows Celtic would not have been able to compete.

Brugge are poised to smash their transfer budget and wage structure to make Wanyama their highest-paid player in their history.
