Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama could be set for a return to Celtic on deadline day, that is according to Evening Standard journalist James Olley.
It is suggested that it will be a loan move with Spurs giving up on trying to get a £9 million fee for the Kenyan international. Added to that, it is also believed that the north London club will be paying a chunk of his wages. Wanyama joined Tottenham from Southampton back in 2016 and initially, he was a regular in the team, starting 35 Premier League matches in the 16/17 campaign (Transfermarkt).
However, in the last couple of years, he has really struggled with injuries (Transfermarkt) which have really curtailed his career at Spurs. As a result, he has fallen well out of favour at the club and this season he has managed to play 112 minutes of football in all competitions (Transfermarkt).
It seems that some Spurs fans are divided on the midfielder’s move to Celtic. Some feel that it is time for him to go, whilst others would be sad if he left and would like him to stay a little longer. Here is what some had say about it on Twitter…
I’d rather we keep Wanyama until the summer, as back-up, than let him go there to save a bit on his wages, without a guarantee of a future sale. Unless he’s turned into a very negative influence in the dressing room.
