Tottenham Hotspur could terminate contract of out of favour midfielder

North London giants Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly looking into ways to move out Victor Wanyama after growing furious at his high wage demands. 

The manager Jose Mourinho had hoped to offload the midfielder last month but the Kenya international failed to attract a suitor due to his sky-high wage demands. 

And, that has reportedly made the Lilywhites furious who were looking to offload the former Celtic midfield dynamo. 

It is now claimed by the English media that Spurs could instead cut ties with the Kenyan entirely by terminating his contract completely. 

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder, who was signed by former manager Mauricio Pochettino for £11.5million in 2016, has been restricted to just four appearances this campaign, playing a total of 122 minutes. 

The Kenyan is evidently not in the plans of Mourinho and he has apparently given the green light to the board to cut their ties with the midfielder. 

Mourinho has plenty of options in the middle of the park with the likes of Harry Winks, Giovani Lo Celso, Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele, Eric Dier and potential £50m recruit Gedson Fernandes.

French club Amiens and Spanish outfit Leganes were both interested in a deal for former Celtic midfielder but his wage demand was too high for them. 

If Spurs reach an agreement with the African to pay off part of the rest of his deal, he would be free to join another club immediately. 

Wanyama was also linked with his former club Celtic before the transfer window closed but the Hoops were also put off by the player's demands. 

The Kenyan has not been able to make a single Premier League start this season and even before this season, he became an outcast due to his persistent injury problems. 

The strong and powerful midfielder made 47 appearances in his first season at Tottenham but his playing time reduced after that due to injuries. 

Spurs have failed to find a suitor for the player for two successive windows now and are now targeting to terminate his contract which can save them a good amount of money as his contract is due to end in June 2021.
