Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama is set to reject a potential move to Roma in order to stay with the club, according to local media reports.

Wanyama, 27, was a key signing for Tottenham in the summer of 2016, as Mauricio Pochettino swooped to reunite with the Kenyan having worked together at Southampton.

The powerful anchor man enjoyed a dream first season with Spurs, becoming a key player at White Hart Lane, but whilst he was expected to continue that last season, he endured a difficult campaign.

Wanyama struggled with injuries and started just eight Premier League games last season, leaving Spurs fans desperately frustrated at his absence.

Wanyama has suffered a knee injury again this summer, and Roma have been keen to lure him to Italy, but the Daily Mail claim that he will reject a move in order to stay put at Tottenham.

It’s stated that Wanyama hopes to play more at Tottenham this season, and is on the verge of gaining a UK passport, hence his desire to stick with Spurs.

Having been a favourite of Pochettino over the years, exit rumours surrounding Wanyama were always surprising, and he certainly deserves another season to prove he can get back to his best.

Wanyama’ defensive abilities were vital for Spurs in the 2016-17 campaign and he was sorely missed last season, and the midfielder’s desire to stay should be a major boost for Spurs.
