The Kenya international will play Champions League football next season after leaving Southampton to sign a five-year deal at White Hart Lane
Tottenham have completed the signing of midfielder Victor Wanyama from Southampton on a five-year contract.
The 24-year-old only had 12 months left on his deal at St Mary’s Stadium and has joined Spurs in a move worth just over £13.5 million.
Wanyama is the club’s first new signing ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

The Kenya international, who was sent off three times in the Premier League last season, made 97 appearances in his three years at Southampton and will now have the opportunity to play Champions League football at Spurs.
Tottenham finished third in the top flight last season to ensure they will automatically qualify for the group stages of Europe’s elite club competition.
Southampton finished sixth to seal a Europa League berth, but are still without a manager after Ronald Koeman elected to join Everton.
