Celtic manager Neil Lennon has said that a move for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama in the January transfer window would depend on availability and affordability.
The Kenyan international has not featured in either of Jose Mourinho’s matchday squads since his appointment at Spurs. He did not make the 18 against West Ham or against Olympiakos midweek.
It has led to more talk about Wanyama potentially returning to Celtic Park, and a lot of supporters on Twitter are behind the idea:
I would take him back in a heartbeat!

If true then good call, I think big Victor would seal the title

Some fans, though, think the money could be better spent on a striker:
absolutely, Lennon was right when he said we need to look at the striker position

Gonna pay a big slice of his salary to sit on our bench? Nah

Wanyama’s wages would certainly be a stumbling block and much would depend on the 28-year-old taking a pay cut in order to facilitate a move back to Scotland.
Celtic are not exactly short of numbers in midfield either, and it would b fair to say that the Kenyan is a player that the Hoops would ‘like to have’ rather than need in January.
