Celtic manager Neil Lennon has told The Scottish Sun that he wanted to sign Victor Wanyama from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

Lennon has also suggested that he could make a move for the Celtic defensive midfielder in the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old Kenya international was on the books of the Hoops from 2011 until 2013 before he made the move to Southampton in the Premier League.

Lennon told The Scottish Sun about Wanyama:There was interest but it never got off the ground.

“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.”

No future at Tottenham Hotspur?

Wanyama is a very good defensive midfielder, but the former Celtic star has failed to make a huge impact at Tottenham Hotspur due to injury concerns.

The former Southampton star has also failed to establish himself in the Spurs team when he has been fit, and it is hard to see him have a long-term future at the North London outfit.

Good move for Celtic?

Wanyama is a very good defensive midfielder, and he would add to the Celtic team.

Given the 28-year-old’s experience in the Scottish Premiership and in Europe, he will be a good signing for the Hoops in the January transfer window.
