​West Ham's Fonte speaks highly of Tottenham duo

Tottenham's Victor Wanyama is one of the Premier League's best midfielders, according to West Ham defender Jose Fonte, reports the London Evening Standard.

Fonte played with Wanyama during his spell at Southampton and is adamant Slaven Bilic's side must be particularly wary of two of his former colleagues later this week.

"[Toby] Alderweireld is a great player and we had a great season together [in 2014-15], while [Victor] Wanyama is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, so what can you say?

"They are great guys," Fonte told West Ham's official website.

"It's going to be tough, but we're in a good place now and we look forward to the challenge and we want to give the fans something to be proud of."
