Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama will now ply his trade at Major League Soccer side Montreal Impact after partying ways with Tottenham Hotspurs in England.

Wanyama has agreed on a three year contract with the Canadian based side who are coached by former Arsenal and Barcelona striker Thierry Henry.

The move came after the Harambee Stars captain fell in Jose Mourinho’s pecking order courtesy of players like Harry Winks and Tanguy Ndombélé.

He leaves Spurs after making 97 appearances and scoring seven goals since he arrived at the North London club from Southampton in June 2016.

Wanyama previously featured for AFC Leopards, Helsingborgs in Sweden, Beerschot of Belgium and Celtic in Scotland before he joined the Premier League.

His new side Montreal Impact are an immediate former home for Uganda Cranes midfielder Mike Azira who is now at Chichago Fire.

Montreal Impact won their first MLS game of the season against New England Revolution 2-1 last week.

Former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic, Algerian Saphir Taider and former Olympique Marseille defender Rod Fanni are some of the notable players at Montreal Impact.

Their next game will be an away fixture against FC Dallas on Saturday 7th.
