Exclusive: PL clubs queuing up to sign Spurs 28yo axed from squad today - Danny Mills claim
Danny Mills has suggested that Premier League clubs will be queueing up to sign Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama.
The former Manchester City and England defender, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that Spurs will be looking to offload a number of players in order to fund further spending.
Wanyama had been used sparingly by Mauricio Pochettino prior to his exit from north London and was a notable absentee from the matchday 18 selected by Jose Mourinho against West Ham today.
As revealed by Football Insider, Mourinho will use the next month to assess his squad before sanctioning any exits.
With the Kenya international, 28, facing an uncertain future at Spurs, Mills says that clubs from the Premier League and abroad will be lining up at Tottenham’s door to snap up the midfield enforcer.
Mills told Football Insider: “There’s plenty of clubs that will be interested in his signature, to have that solid defensive midfield player. Teams anywhere from seventh down in the Premier League are thinking: ‘Oh yes, he can do a job for us.’ If not, he’ll maybe go somewhere in Europe or further afield.

“He’s still a very, very good player and that’s the other thing Mourinho’s going to have to do, get a few out because Daniel Levy, there might be a little bit of a warchest but he’s still going to have to balance the squad and get a bit of money back in, so getting players out is going to be part of his remit as well.”
Wanyama has featured just three times across all competitions this season, his only start coming in the shock League Cup defeat to Colchester United.
He has a total of 96 appearances to his name for Spurs and 154 Premier League games under his belt.
