Wanyama could return to Celtic in January reveals Hoops boss Lennon

A possible January return to old stomping ground Celtic Park for Victor Wanyama is not a farfetched idea for Scottish side Celtic FC according to the Hoops manager Neil Lennon.

Wanyama has fallen out of favour at current club Tottenham Hotspur and was close to sealing a move away in August with Belgian side Club Brugge heavily linked with the Harambee Stars captain.

Fan favourite

The defensive midfielder spent two years at Celtic Park from 2011 to 2013 where he was a crowd favourite and in a recent interview, Lennon, who was his manager at the time, failed to rule out a possible move for the former Southampton man as he confirmed that they were also in for him in the off-season transfer window.

“There was interest but it never got off the ground,” the 48 year old is quoted as saying by Team Talk. “Could we look at it again in January? We’ll have to wait and see…we might not want to with the balance of the squad now, as well as the affordability.”

Market valuation

Wanyama, who turned 28 in June, has a current valuation of 15m Euros.

He is yet to make a single appearance for the North London side this season but has been included in Spurs’ 25-man list for this year’s UEFA Champions League whose group stage is set to kick off today.

Mauricio Pochettino’s charges have been placed in a tough Group B alongside Bayern Munich, Olympiacos and Red Star Belgrade and will begin their campaign with an away tie to Olympiacos on Wednesday.
