Former Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama has announced he is leaving CF Montreal after two years with the Canadian Major League side.

Wanyama's current contract with the club runs out at the end of this year with the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder revealing he has no plans to stay beyond that period.

“I think at the end of the season I will leave, I’ve had great years here; I’ve enjoyed being part of the team and at the end of the season I will be free to leave,” Wanyama said. 

 Wanyama emphasised that his main priority for now is to help his team finish strong before deciding his next step.

“As long as I am here now, my aim is to focus on the games and make sure we finish well, then I can have a chance to say goodbye. I will finish strong, then after playoffs, I don’t know, we will see.”

The 31-year-old moved to Montreal in March 2020 after being released by Spurs. He has previously featured at Southampton FC, Germinal Beerschot AC and Scottish giants Celtic.

He currently captains Montreal, for whom he has made a total of 87 appearances and scored seven goals so far.
