Southampton to boycott Tottenham Hotspur
Southampton will not be dealing with Tottenham Hotspur in the future following Spurs’ antics in their attempt to sign Victor Wanyama, according to reports from the Daily Telegraph.
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy is known to be a notoriously tough negotiator and he was hopeful of pulling off a deal for Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama this summer.
Following Spurs’ interest in Wanyama, the midfielder had handed in a transfer request at the St. Mary’s Stadium in an attempt to force the move but Southampton stood firm and decided against selling the Kenyan international.
Now according to reports from the Daily Telegraph, Spurs look unlikely to be able to land the services of Wanyama during the January transfer window as well, as Southampton are reluctant to do any business with the North London side.
While the primary reason behind this is due to the fact that Southampton consider Tottenham one of their direct rivals, the Saints are also said to be fed up with Spurs’ negotiating tactics and will now look to avoid dealing with Daniel Levy in the future.
