The Guardian has mentioned Victor Wanyama as a January loan target for Celtic.
The Manchester based publisher doesn’t normally delve into transfer speculation but mention of Wanyama gets the same prominence as Jonny Hayes going to Huddersfield in the summer. It seems as if half the clubs in the Championship are ‘keeping tabs’ on the Irishman.
Neil Lennon did confirm an interest in Wanyama after the summer window closed but with concerns over his match fitness and a knee condition it is difficult to the African making a return to Celtic.
The Guardian reports:
Another Spurs employee possibly heading away from their swanky stadium is Victor Wanyama, who could be heading back to Celtic on what would initially be a loan deal. Though heading out the door at Parkhead might be the winger Jonny Hayes, in whom Huddersfield are interested.
Lennon signed Wanyama from Belgian side Germinal in 2011 as a teenager who quickly forced his way into the Celtic side that won the title for the first time in four years.
By the time that he scored against Barcelona it was clear that he would soon be on the move to England with Southampton paying the hoops £13m for the midfielder.
Should Celtic sign Victor Wanyama on loan in January
Yes, he still has the quality. No-brainer
No, it would be a very expensive risk
Last season he started four matches in the EPL while making nine appearances as a substitute, this term he has played twice as a substitute. At the age of 28 he should be in the peak years of his career but a question marks hangs over his fitness.
