Saints midfielder Victor Wanyama is desperate to recover his most treasured football mementos, after they were stolen from his home this week.

The 23-year-old’s Winchester house was burgled while he was away with the team for Monday night’s Premier League fixture against Aston Villa.

Police confirmed that electrical items, jewellery and Wanyama’s Range Rover Sport were all taken, although the car was later recovered in Buckinghamshire.

However, the Saints star revealed that none of those things proved to be the greatest loss.

“I lost a lot of things, but the most important were the football memories,” said former Celtic player Wanyama, in an interview with Sky Sports.

“I lost many souvenir shirts of my Champions League football, and also some of the opponents, like [Andres] Iniesta and [Paul] Pogba.

“If anyone sees them being put out somewhere like eBay then can I ask they get in touch with me at the club?

“I would love to get them back. They bring very important memories for me.”
