Wanyama staying put at Celtic



Kenyan international Victor Wanyama who has been touted to make a move to the English Premier League in the January transfer window will be staying at Celtic after all.

Supersport.com can authoritatively reveal that Wanyama will stay at Celtic Park and is focused on helping the club retain its league title as well as in the ongoing Champions League.

Wanyama added that he was tired of hearing about transfer rumours and had decided to instead concentrate on his game.

"I can confirm to you that I will be at Celtic. We are playing well and our Champions league dream are on and right now I am looking forward to the big game against Juventus. Alot has been said and written about my intended move but I have not given it much thought and even my manager feels I should play until the end of the season for Celtic then from that point the doors can be open for a move," Wanyama told supersport.com.

Sources intimated to supersport.com that Wanyama's stay in Celtic was also for his own good as the transfer fee at the end of the season might improve from what has been quoted now.

"I can confirm to you Wanyama will be in Celtic until the end of the season. He is happy at the club and he does not want any distractions now since he is in the form of his life and he feels comfortable in the team," the source who sort anonymity told supersport.com.

Several teams including Manchester United and Arsenal have shown interest on the talented defensive midfielder and with two days to the close of the January transfer window no team had put a solid bid for the player.
