Tottenham Hotspur’s summer signing Victor Wanyama has stated that the North London outfit are just as big a club as his former employers Celtic.

The Kenya international spent two seasons in Glasgow and showcased his considerable abilities to the point that Southampton splashed out to bring him to the Premier League.

Wanyama has since moved to Spurs over the summer and has put in some notable performances for Mauricio Pochettino’s men already, including a dominant showing in the 2-0 victory over Manchester City last time out.

The African enforcer has confessed that he is glad to be back playing in the Champions League and that the level of support he has felt at White Hart Lane compares to the passionate crowd at Parkhead.

“Hopefully we can be in a situation where we have more Champions League nights every season,” Wanyama told Four Four Two.

“I think this club is up there with Celtic. It’s a big club and you can feel that in the dressing room.

“We have young players who want to work hard and who are very ambitious, which is a good thing.”

Wanyama has added dynamism and a second-to-none work-rate to Pochettino’s squad, with the 25-year-old set to compete with Mousa Dembele and Eric Dier for a regular central midfield starting berth in North London.

The African star’s performances so far have endeared him to the White Hart Lane faithful and his signature has added strength in depth to the Premier League title-chasing outfit.
