The day Victor Wanyama makes his league debut for Southampton will be an extra special day for the 22-year-old – he will also become the first Kenyan to ever play in the Premier League.
The former Celtic man should adjust to the physicality of the Premier League with ease thanks to his powerful frame and fearless tackling. His composure on the ball will also serve him well amid the frantic pace of the English game.
Versatility will be an important virtue for Southampton next season as they look to stake their claim as an emerging force in England. Wanyama’s ability to fill in at centre-back is certainly a bonus for a side that will need to put out a strong XI every week to achieve their targets.
