Lennon Reveals Whether January Deal For Tottenham Star Is Likely

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that he would like to bring Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama back to Parkhead, but it isn’t a priority for the January transfer window.

Speaking at the club’s AGM, the Hoops boss was asked about the club’s interest in the Kenyan international, and he replied by stating he is a fan of the player:

“For a player like Wanyama, availability and affordability. Would I like Wanyama in the building? Of course. But it may not be an area we are looking to add to because of the way the midfield is functioning. We are looking in the forward area. It may be the one area we are looking to strengthen.”

Lennon has essentially reiterated a view that he has stated when previously asked about Wanyama. There’s no doubt that the midfielder would be a valuable asset but it seems another striker is the priority at the moment.

Wanyama spent two years working under Lennon before his £12.5m move to Southampton in 2013, but he has found himself out of the first-team picture at Spurs over the last couple of seasons.

Knee problems have certainly taken their toll on the 28-year-old, and there also have to be question marks over whether he is still capable of making an impact at the highest level.
