It was in the summer Celtic tried to re-sign Victor Wanyama but nothing came of the late move.

Neil Lennon was asked about the player again in November with the Irishman telling shareholders and our reporter in attendance it was all about affordability and availability.

“For a player like Wanyama, availability and affordability. Would I like Wanyama in the building? Of course.”

There’s not been much noise on the Wanyama front since when it comes to Celtic. More wishful thinking than anything else.

It’s no secret the Kenyan is looking for first team football but José Mourinho d any rumours the defensive midfielder was angling for a move away from Spurs.

Mourinho hasn’t brought Victor back into the fold since becoming Tottenham boss and while speculation may continue – Mourinho has temporarily put a halt to it.

“He’s our player,” the Spurs boss told Football London. “If he wants to leave or not, he didn’t tell me, we didn’t discuss. We are calm about it. Good professional. That’s it.”

Celtic are close to announcing a couple of deals with a striker and a defensive mid. Surely the introduction of a new midfielder would end any speculation at Celtic’s end about returning to bring Wanyama home.

Not that we’d complain if two midfielders came in if one of them was Victor.
