Tottenham have announced the signing of Victor Wanyama – and Twitter was impressed at the relatively cut-price deal.

Spurs have paid Southampton a reported £11million fee for the 24-year-old, while his former club Celtic will also receive a substantial sum due to the sell-on clause inserted in the deal that took him to the south coast three years ago.

The midfielder has a reputation as the enforcer’s enforcer after starring in the holding midfield role for the Saints in the past three seasons and and making a notable 400-plus interceptions in 2015-16.

Some Spurs fans are delighted at the deal, believing the transfer fee to be a good piece of business by Mauricio Pochettino.

Many Celtic supporters are also delighted their club will receive a welcome windfall.

However, many fans on Twitter voiced their concerns over the Kenya international, who has picked up three red cards this season.

It remains to be seen whether Mauricio Pochettino can get Wanyama to hit the ground running at the second time of asking after previously managing the midfielder at St Mary’s Stadium.
