Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has acquired British citizenship and could be on his way back to Scottish giants Celtics after falling down in Jose Mourinho’s pecking order at Tottenham Hotspurs, something that has ignited his move from the North London club to Celtic FC.
According to reports by British newspaper Evening Standard, on 2nd March 2020, Mr. Wanyama wasn’t ready to leave Tottenham last January as he sought British citizenship ‘but that situation has now been resolved since he has now acquired British citizenship.’
It’s a normal, thing for a footballer to get British Citizenship after playing or staying here for at least five years,” Wanyama confirmed.
Victor Wanyama has stayed in United Kingdom (UK) for a period of nine year since he joined Glasgow side Celtic in the year 2011. Wanya played for Southampton FC before moving to Spurs.
“Victor Wanyama’s agent Ivan Modia will announce whether the Kenyan International will be leaving Spurs or not, the decision will be made in two or three days,” he added.
The Kenyan international has not featured in several matches since the arrival of Jose Mourinho. The last time played for Tottenham was in their 7-2 Champions League loss to Bayern Munich where he featured for only 12 minutes.
