Tottenham have beaten off interest from Leicester and struck a deal to sign Victor Wanyama from Southampton. A fee, believed to be around £11million, has been agreed between the clubs and the Kenyan midfielder is expected to have a medical in the coming days. Wanyama, who turns 25 next week, is the first player Mauricio Pochettino has successfully lured from his former club Southampton, after failing in previous attempts for Morgan Schneiderlin and Adam Lallana. Saints had offered the player a new contract but after he snubbed the deal, the managerless south-coast club admitted defeat and have opted to cash in. Spurs chairman had tried to sell either Ryan Mason or Nabil Bentaleb in part-exchange but neither player is likely to join Saints. Pochettino wants Wanyama to compete for places with England anchor man Eric Dier and Belgian star Mousa Dembele, as Spurs prepare for the increased demands of Champions League football. Leicester were also interested but Wanyama was keen to link up again with Pochettino, who signed him from Celtic in 2013.
