Aakarsh / 21 June 2016

The Premier League is set to be a busy stage this summer with clubs all around the country searching high and dry for potential stars to take them to new heights.

The new TV deal that will also provide the clubs with some financial relief will play its part in the transfers within the country and it looks like the clubs do not want to wait till the transfer window is open.

Many Premier League clubs have already made one or even more signings which are ready to be made official as soon the as the window is open and it now looks like London outfit Tottenham Hotspur have made their first signing of the summer.

Mauricio Pochettino did a great job with the squad last season as he took them to touching distance of the title and is now looking for quality additions to sustain the competition next season.

And it is now reported that Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama is officially the first player the Argentine manager will sign at Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The Kenyan international has been at the centre of the midfield for Southampton the last couple of years but in the fag end of the last season, he has not been able to cement a place in the side under Ronald Koeman.

But with Koeman now leaving the club, it is understood that the White Hart Lane outfit snatched at the opportunity and agreed to terms with the midfielder.

And it is now reported that the 24-year old has passed all the medicals at Tottenham Hotspur and is all set to sign a 4-year deal with the club. Though the move is not official, it is expected to unveiled soon in the coming days.

The Tottenham Hotspur manager is a long-term admirer of the midfielder and is said to bring him to the club in a £11million deal which, keeping in mind the other rumours is a steal.

He is only contracted with the Saints till the end of the next season and the deal seems to make sense for all the three parties leaving Tottenham with a potentially match-winning player in their ranks.

The 24-year old who is travelled to London from Nairobi for the medical described the move as special and thanked all his fans at the St Marys.

“I am indeed elated at passing my medicals at Tottenham it’s a new dawn in my career and I believe I will give my best for my new team.”

“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,” he added.
