Wanyama recovering from infection

On reports linking him to Manchester United in the January transfer window Wanyama said, "I have also had of the sentiments just like you but let’s see how everything will turn out but for now my focus in on my team Celtic as we wait for January where I will be coming home for a week."

"I also want to wish my Kenyan teammates all the best when they clash with Tanzania on Wednesday I know they will perform well even in my absence," he added.
