Wanyama’s transfer update comes a week after Spurs manager Jose Mourinho said that the 28-year-old has not discussed his future with him.

"He’s our player. If he wants to leave or not, he didn't tell me, we didn't discuss,” he said. "We are calm about it. Good professional. That’s it." 

Wanyama, who joined Spurs from Southampton in the summer of 2016, has struggled with injuries and subsequently lost his place in the team.

Since Mourinho's arrival at Spurs, Wanyama has only made two Premier League appearances for Tottenham this season and the 'Special One' could be willing to sanction a loan deal with a view to a permanent deal, as a result.

Galatasaray will now offer Wanyama a fresh start after he slipped down Tottenham Hotspur’s midfield pecking order behind Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko and Eric Dier.
