Victor Mugubi Wanyama (born 25 June 1991) is a Kenyan professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for MLS side Montreal Impact and captains the Kenya national team.

Wanyama became the first ever Kenyan player to score in the UEFA Champions League when he scored the first goal in Celtic's 2–1 win over Barcelona on 7 November 2012. On 11 July 2013, Wanyama moved to Premier League club Southampton for £12.5 million making him the most expensive player sold by a Scottish club, surpassing the £9.5 million Russian club Spartak Moscow paid for Aiden McGeady in 2010.

He has earned over 30 caps for the Kenyan national team since making his international debut in May 2007 at the age of 15.

Wanyama attended Kamukunji High School, which fields a successful football team. Upon leaving High School, he also played with JMJ Academy for three years during which time he also joined Kenyan Premier League clubs Nairobi City Stars and AFC Leopards. In 2007 he joined Allsvenskan club Helsingborg but after the departure of his brother McDonald Mariga to Serie A side Parma in 2008, Wanyama returned to Kenya.

On 23 June 2016, Tottenham Hotspur announced that they had reached an agreement with Southampton for the transfer of Wanyama, signing a five-year deal for a fee of £11 million. Wanyama had previously worked with Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino who brought him to Southampton in July 2013.

Wanyama made his debut for the Kenyan national team in May 2007, aged just 15 in a friendly against Nigeria. He also played in all six of Kenya's 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. He became the captain of his national team in 2013.
