Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama vows to sue 19-year socialite who claimed he paid her for sex.

The national captain has insisted he will take a 19-year-old woman to court following her claims he paid her £5,000 for sex.

During an Instagram Live interview with blogger Xtiandela, socialite Shakila claimed she had been paid for sex by several Kenyan celebrities, including Wanyama.

But the former Tottenham midfielder has hit back by releasing a statement on his official Twitter account, furiously refuting and condemning the ‘fabricated and insulting’ allegations.

Wanyama, 29, said: ‘My attention has been drawn to a video circulating online containing false, fabricated and insulting allegations aimed at scandalising my good name and reputation.

‘I wish to distance myself completely from the contents of this defamatory video.

‘The allegations made therein are a total fabrication and a figment of the maker’s imagination at best. I have NEVER met any party in the video.

‘I strongly condemn the actions of both the woman in the video and the publisher of the video Arthur Mandela via his Instagram account @Xtiandela for encouraging the disparagement of character of individuals based on false accusatory statements.

‘Consequently, and with the blessing of my management team, I have instructed my legal team to pursue ALL legal remedies available to me and to which I have the unreserved right to seek. That is all I wish to state.’
