Tottenham legend Ledley King says Victor Wanyama is bonding well with his Tottenham team-mates. Spurs ‘left their mark’ on Melbourne this morning after artists created a Tottenham inspired mural.
Tottenham’s latest £11m signing Victor Wanyama was full of smiles despite Melbourne’s cold winter weather.
“I can see he looks very settled already he looks very comfortable around the other guys which is good. It’s a great team spirit, the quicker the players settle in the better it is for the team. He looks like he is ready to go,” said King.

The Premier Leagues’s first Kenyan born international is looking forward to playing in front of Australia’s Spurs fans. Wanyama’s transfer to White Hart Lane reunites him with former Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino, who played a huge factor in his signing.
“I think it was an easy decision for me because Tottenham is big club and is always improving and getting better and better,” said Wanyama.
Pochettino signed the 25 year old from Celtic during his time at Southampton, in a season taking The Saints to their greatest ever league finish. His time with Wanyama was cut short after leaving Southampton for Spurs in 2014. The pair will once again be working side by side as Tottenham gear up for another crack at the Premier League title.
“Im really glad to be working with him again, said Wanyama. It’s going to be a big season for us. We have Champions League and we are competing for the Premier League.”
“It will be a bit tougher now but I think if we play our best we will have a good season,”
