It's so far so good for Victor Wanyama in his early days at Spurs.


The powerful midfielder steps into his third week of pre-season today at Hotspur Way as we countdown to the big kick-off at Everton on August 13.

Victor featured in our second private friendly of the summer against Fulham on Saturday alongside fellow recent arrival Vincent Janssen.

Mauricio has been impressed with what he's seen so far of a player he knows well from their time together at Southampton.

"Victor is very happy, excited and very motivated about the new challenge he has here," said Mauricio.

"We’re happy as well because he’s an important player and a player who wants the best. We will provide him with the best tools  to arrive at the start of the season really fit."
