Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has completed his term in English Premier League after seven years with two different clubs.

Wanyama joined Tottenham Hotspur in June 2016 from Southampton on a five-year contract for £11 million.

Tottenham announced on Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with the Major League Soccer side Montreal Impact for the transfer of the midfielder Wanyama.

Wanyama appeared 97 times for Tottenham and scored seven times.

Wanyama leaves Tottenham without playing under their new coach Jose Mourinho.

He will be remembered for being the first Kenyan player to score in the UEFA Champions League when he was playing for Celtic Football Club, a Scottish professional football club.

His crucial first goal saw Celtic beating Barcelona 2-1 on November 7, 2012.

The 28-year old midfielder had previously worked with former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino who brought him to Southampton.

The Monreal Impact have signed Wanyama as a designated player via a free transfer for a three-year contract.
