Victor Wanyama has ended his nightmare season at Tottenham Hotspur and crossed over to the Major League Soccer (MLS), joining Canada based Montreal Impact on a three year deal. Wanyama terminated his contract with Spurs rendering him a free agent to enable him get a new club.

He had twice tried to leave Spurs at the start of the season and in January, but both moves fell off on the final day. However, he now has a chance to reinvent himself at the MLS Club coached by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

“When I spoke to Thierry and he told me he wanted me to join him in Montreal, I didn’t have to think twice. He has always been a player that I’ve admired, and I am really happy to get the opportunity to work with him and to play a part that can ensure that the Montreal Impact have an improved season and hopefully reach the ultimate stages of the competitions in which we compete,” Wanyama said after sealing his move.

He traveled to Canada on Tuesday morning and spent the entire day negotiating his contract and undertaking his medicals. He now returns to London to finalize his transition to North America.

“Victor is an important player with a great career,” said Sporting Director Olivier Renard. “His undeniable experience will also help support the young players and help them progress.”

Wanyama had endured a tough time at Spurs especially after battling from injury last season. He only had two substitute appearances in the league this season and one in the Champions League. He hadn’t played for Spurs since November.
