Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama is expected to complete his move to Tottenham Hotspur today (Monday).
Wanyama has been in his native Kenya, and national newspaper the Daily Nation report the midfielder flew out on Nairobi on Sunday night along with agent Ivan Modia to complete the transfer, and undergo a medical.

It is claimed Wanyama has agreed personal terms in principle ahead of the switch, and is poised to become Tottenham's first summer signing.
The Kenyan international played under Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino while at Southampton, and will relish the chance to play Champions League football again, as he did at former club Celtic.

Wanyama has only one year left on his current deal at Southampton, and with the Saints currently looking to appoint a new manager after Ronald Koeman quit for Everton, it makes sense to cash in on the midfielder and put the funds forward for their next coach to use.
He will provide competition in midfield for Spurs, who finished third in the Premier League last season, but fell away down the stretch after battling for the title, with key players out suspended.
