Wanyama plays down Man Utd link



Celtic midfielder Victor Mugubi Wanyama has dismissed reports linking him with a move to English Premier league giants Manchester United.

Wanyama who has been in superb form has been linked with several teams with the latest one being Manchester United with reports that they are mulling over a possible bid in the January transfer window.

He however reiterated that his main concern at the moment was to help Celtic in the domestic and Champions League matches.

"I have heard a lot about my intended move to several clubs and the latest being Manchester United but personally I just think those are rumours. My focus now remains with my team Celtic whom I want to help in both the domestic and champions league."

"Leaving Celtic will not be easy as they cannot just let me go easily as many people think but all in all am happy here and looking forward to continue playing for them as I work hard in my career," Wanyama told supersport.com.

The younger brother to Inter Milan midfielder MacDonald Mariga, Wanyama has been a hit at the Scottish side earning first team place in Neil Lennon's squad. He is currently the most expensive Kenyan player valued at Kshs1.2 billion.
