Vincent Janssen and Victor Wanyama

Vincent Janssen joins Monterrey

Goodbye-ee! Goodbye-ee!
Wipe the tear, baby dear, from your eye-ee. 
Though it's hard to part I know, (I know) 
I'll be tickled to death to go! 
Don't cry-ee, don't sigh-ee, 
There's a silver lining in the sky-ee! 
Bonsoir old thing, cheerio, chin-chin,
Nah-poo, toodle-oo, goodbye-ee!

Yes, that's right folks, Vincent Janssen has passed his medical, which took place in London and will now fly out to Monterrey before he is announced.

The Dutch striker is finally off our books and begins a new chapter of his career in Monterrey in Mexico and I for one wish him all the best. He is a goalscorer and I'm sure he'll find his shooting boots out there, although he will have to get used to the heat and humidity.

If I were to guess, wages swung his decision.

His fee is as I have been posting for a while now, round £7 million (€7.79m- $8.72m) because, as you know, that covers our annual cost of keeping him.

Good luck Vincent.

Victor Wanyama is not on Spurs pre-season tour and is up for sale. Spurs want to sell him, however, he does not want to leave Spurs. He says he wants to force his way into Pochettino's plans.

“I will be back in training with Spurs next week. I do not want to dwell much on speculations because it’s normal for a player to be linked with other clubs when the transfer window is open but I’m not going anywhere,” ESPN quoted Wanyama as saying.

Wanyama is not on Spurs pre-season because he is on holiday after playing in the Africa Cup of Nations this summer. He returns to training next week and says he doesn't want to dwell on the past and is targetting an injury-free season.

That past has seen him have two seasons of injury so he is going to have to improve his game to figure even semi-regularly.

West Ham have spoken to Spurs about the Kenyan international captain, Fulham have spoken to us about him and Turkish side Galatasaray have as well.

We will have to wait and see what happens when he returns from holiday and has his chat with Mauricio Pochettino.
