Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has left Tottenham Hotspur to join Major League Soccer side Montreal Impact in a three- and-a-half year deal.
Montreal, under the tutelage of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, is currently third in the MLS league standing. The midfielder has failed to nail a starting berth at Tottenham following the exit of Mauricio Pochettino who coached the English Premier League side before current coach Jose Mourinho.
He made 97 appearances for Spurs during his three-and-a-half year stay at the club having been signed by Pochettino from Southampton.
However, this season he has played only 24 minutes in this Premier League and has made just four appearances for Spurs in all competitions.
Back home, fans poured into social media, some supporting the move while others opposed it saying Montreal Impact is a lowly club.
Wanyama could make his debut for Montreal against FC Dallas this Saturday
