Celtic and Tottenham are in talks over midfielder Victor Wanyama, as reported by the Evening Standard.

The Standard reports that the London club and the Hoops are in discussions over a loan deal, which would likely to include an option to buy.

The report also states that Spurs will pay the majority of the midfielder’s wages, and that no club have been able to meet their asking price for a permanent deal.

If the Hoops can bring Wanyama back to the club, it would be a huge deal for the club.

Terrific in first spell with Hoops

He was terrific in his first spell at Celtic, and if he can repeat that form it would be a massive bonus for Celtic in their bid to win nine in a row.

The signing of Wanyama even on loan would be a game-changer.

 

It would send a message to the rest of Scottish football that the Hoops are serious about keeping hold of their title, and it would show that the Hoops are keen to make an impression in Europe.

Player’s return would be boost to support

The return of Wanyama to Celtic would also be a huge boost to the club’s support. The fans would be thrilled to see a player who was brilliant in his first spell at the club come back to help the team hopefully win nine then 10 in a row.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon is obviously still a fan of the player. He claimed only a few weeks ago that the player is ‘in my thoughts’.

“He’s in my thoughts. But could we afford him? I doubt it very much” Lennon said, as quoted by the Herald.

Now the Hoops reportedly have a chance to bring the player back to the club on loan. Hopefully the deal can get done before the window closes.
