Wanyama discusses future, comments on whether reported Spurs bid affected him

Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama has vowed to give his all to the club.

Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama has told Capital FM in his native Kenya that he will concentrate on life with the Saints after confusion over his future.

Wanyama, 24, has impressed with the Saints ever since his move from Celtic in 2013, establishing himself as one of the most dominant defensive midfielders in the Premier League.

Yet much like his former Southampton team-mates Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Morgan Schneiderlin and Nathaniel Clyne, those impressive displays trigger plenty of interest.

In the run-up to the transfer deadline, it had been reported by the London Evening Standard that Tottenham offered £20m plus either Andros Townsend or Erik Lamela - a bid that was rejected by the Saints.

With Wanyama's former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino looking to reunite at White Hart Lane, the Daily Mail believe that Wanyama will reject a new contract offer from Southampton in a bid to finally make his way to Spurs.

However, Wanyama has now clarified his future with Capital FM in his native Kenya, suggesting that he will give his all to the cause at St. Mary's Stadium - and was adamant that the interest from Spurs did not affect him.

"I will fully concentrate on Southampton since I have a contract with them running,” he said. "It [Tottenham's interest] didn’t affect me in any way. I’m still a Southampton player and I will give my best when I go back and hopefully we will win more games," he added.

Wanyama didn't exactly say that he was happy to stay at Southampton, more that he will be committed to the club whilst he has a contract with them.

It will now be interesting to see whether Spurs decide to continue their interest in Wanyama leading up to the January transfer window, with an element of uncertainty still surrounding the midfielder's future.
