Noel Whelan has suggested to Football Insider that Tottenham Hotspur defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama could join Celtic in the January transfer window.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon told The Scottish Sun that he wanted to sign Wanyama on loan from Premier League outfit Tottenham in the summer transfer window.

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder was on the books of the Hoops from 2011 until 2013 and worked under Lennon at Celtic Park.

Former Aberdeen and Dunfermline Athletic striker Whelan has suggested that Wanyama could move to the Hoops in the January transfer window.

Whelan told Football Insider about Wanyama: “It looks like Wanyama’s Tottenham career is coming to an end. He’s had a lot of injury problems in the last few years and he can’t get in the team.

“No player can be happy not playing. He’ll want to get his career back on track and a move to Celtic on loan makes total sense.

“He knows the club really well, he knows Neil Lennon thinks the world of him and he would be playing regularly. I can see him joining in January, definitely.”

Celtic move in January?

Wanyama has struggled to play regularly for Tottenham and also had injury issues during his time at the North London outfit.

It is hard to see the Kenya international defensive midfielder establish himself as a regular in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the coming weeks and months, and a move to Celtic in the January transfer window would make sense for the former Southampton star.
