Former Celtic hero Victor Wanyama could be on his way back to the club, as reported by the Evening Standard.
The Standard reports that Celtic and Spurs are in talks over a loan move for the player, who starred for the Hoops in his first spell with the club.
The report also states that an option to buy is likely to be included in the deal.
Some Celtic fans on social media have given their reaction to the news that Wanyama could be on his way back to Celtic Park.
One fan said that he would pay an extra £50 on his season ticket if the Hoops managed to get the deal done.
Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Wanyama’s potential return:

Not expecting Celtic to do anything today. However, if Lennon plans to use 3-5-2 often then another centre back is needed. If he plans to use 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 regularly then a left winger is needed. Wanyama would be a nice bonus (and could play centre back), but would be a surprise.

I finish work at 11pm tonight and then driving straight to Parkhead for the Wanyama/Benkovic double unveiling.

It’s Celtic on the last day of the transfer window so I highly doubt anything will happen but if we got Wanyama in then that would be class

Only time will tell if the Hoops get a deal for Wanyama done. He would certainly be a high-profile signing, perhaps more high-profile than any deadline-day signings for a while at Celtic Park.
Could be a welcome addition to squad
If he can recapture the form he displayed in his first spell at Celtic, then Wanyama would be a more than welcome addition to the Hoops squad.
Hopefully the deal gets done, and Wanyama is announced at Celtic Park tonight. That would be a very good ending to the transfer window for the Scottish champions.
