Tottenham and Club Brugge have agreed a £13million deal for Victor Wanyama.
The 28-year old is expected to sign a four year contract after protracted negotiations came to a close on Thursday afternoon.
Wanyama, who had two years left on contract, had interest from Bologna, Monaco, Celtic and Valencia but Tottenham were refusing to loan out the Kenya international and only wanted a permanent sale.
Talks had also stalled over personal terms with Brugge offering a drop in salary despite him becoming their highest earner alongside Simon Mignolet.
Wanyama cost Tottenham a bargain £11m from Southampton and they have done well to make a profit though the fee entails an initial £9m up front with the rest in add ons.
The powerful midfielder has suffered with niggling knee injuries in recent seasons and dropped down the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino.
He wants to kickstart his career and play more regularly.
Wanyama will hope to prove his worth in the Champions League and saw Brugge draw Real Madrid and Paris St Germain, two of the tournament favourites, in Group A on Thursday.
