Celtic: Victor Wanyama addresses 2022/23 plans

Celtic: Victor Wanyama addresses 2022/23 plans -Celtic News

Victor Wanyama has affirmed his commitment to CF Montreal after previously expressing a desire to return to Celtic. 

The lowdown

Wanyama told Football Scotland earlier this month that he wants ‘to come back and give it a last go’ at Celtic Park because ‘everything there was great’.

He also confirmed that the Hoops had tried to sign him on loan in January 2020 when Neil Lennon was in charge.

Wanyama spent two years at Celtic after joining from Belgium in a £990,000 deal.

He made 91 appearances for the club in that time, helping them to win two Scottish league titles and one Scottish Cup.

The Kenyan played so well that he earned a £13.05million transfer to EPL side Southampton.

He now finds himself at MLS outfit CF Montreal, where he has just over a year to run on his contract.

The latest

Wanyama has now quashed hopes of an imminent return to Glasgow by confirming that he will spend the 2022 MLS campaign in Montreal.

“I still have a contract here, I love the club and I just want to focus on our task,” the £4.5million-rated midfielder said, as quoted by TVA Sports. “I will be here next season too.”

The verdict

Wanyama isn’t necessarily closing the door altogether on a second spell at Celtic. He may look to move on when that contract ends next year, and he’ll only be 31 at that time.

Could he represent an upgrade on summer signing James McCarthy, who’s disappointed so far?

Or would it be painted as a similarly careless deal, sentimentally bringing back an ex-Hoop whose best days are perhaps well behind him?
