Tottenham determined to offload Wanyama as foreign trio circle

Tottenham are determined to offload Victor Wanyama before Friday night's transfer deadline.

The Daily Mail says Bayer Leverkusen, Fiorentina, Rennes and Strasbourg have all expressed an interest in the Kenya international who has been on the periphery of Tottenham's first team for the past year.

The 28-year-old, who has a British passport, still has 18 months left on contract and is keen to kickstart his career and play more regularly.

Tottenham had been holding out for a fee but could soften their stance over the next 24 hours as they look to streamline their squad.

Wanyama was regarded as one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe when he arrived at the club but a couple of niggling injuries pushed him down the pecking order.
