Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama is open to a return to Glasgow to join Celtic in the January transfer window, according to the Football Insider website.

The Spurs enforcer spent two years with the Bhoys earlier in his career, before leaving to join Southampton, ahead of eventually making his way to the capital where he currently plies his trade.

Wanyama was close to exiting Tottenham in the summer, when a move to Belgian outfit Club Brugge was lined up, however the Kenya international pulled the plug on that at the eleventh hour and is now plotting his next move.

He has fallen way down the pecking order at Spurs since the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele and the emergence of Harry Winks, with game time looking very short in supply for the 28-year-old.

The Kenyan has only started one match so far this season, and that came in the Carabao Cup, with his only Premier League appearances seeing him come off the bench on a couple of occasions.

It would appear that Wanyama will leave the club in January, which is something that will interest Celtic, as they were keen to sign him in the summer only to see nothing materialise.

The Kenyan is believed to be keen to link up with his former boss Neil Lennon, under whom he had a successful first spell with the Bhoys, and who is someone he believes can get the best out of him once again, after the midfielder has seen the latest period of his career dogged by injuries.

It may be that the powerful midfield ace will have to make his way back to Celtic on loan, because the Glasgow giants are not expected to be able to cover his £65,000 per week wages in order to sign him permanently.
