Tottenham Hotspur confirmed on their official website on Thursday evening that they have snapped up midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton.

With Champions League football returning to White Hart Lane next season, manager Mauricio Pochettino had to strengthen his squad - and he has now made his first summer signing.

With little quality depth behind Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele in holding midfield, Pochettino has decided to add more power and physicality to his ranks by signing Southampton's Victor Wanyama.

The Kenyan international, 24, has been a star for the Saints ever since being signed by Pochettino back in 2013, and the former Celtic star has now reunited with his former boss at White Hart Lane.

With almost 100 appearances for Southampton over the last three years, Wanyama has become a proven Premier League player, and Spurs appear to have landed him in a bargain deal worth just £11m according to The Guardian.

Wanyama's reunion with Pochettino makes this a particularly interesting signing for Spurs, and supporters have been taking to Twitter in order to give their views.

Fans suggested that Wanyama will add experience and aggression to the Tottenham midfield, forming a tough partnership with Dier and Dembele - and pointed to his experience with Pochettino as a key reason for their delight with the signing.

Supporters also praised chairman Daniel Levy for backing manager Pochettino with the players he wants and has worked with before, whilst also lauding him for getting a superb price on Wanyama, who had just one year left on his contract at Southampton.

Are you happy with the signing of Wanyama?
