NEIL LENNON confirmed Celtic made a play for Victor Wanyama back in the summer but it never got off the ground with the midfielder staying at Spurs.

The Tottenham outcast has played 113 minutes of club football so far this season and his future at the club looks bleak.

Celtic are on a roll and have already qualified for the last 32 of the Europa League. Victor presents an opportunity to sign a marquee player where we have an edge. His first stint at Celtic was successful and he knows Neil Lennon well. Could Fraser Forster’s resurgence convince the midfielder to head back north – even on a short term loan?

Speaking back in the summer, Lennon didn’t rule it out but he was unsure if it was financially possible.

“There was interest but it never got off the ground.” Lennon told SunSport.

“Could we look at it again in January? We’ll have to wait and see.

“We might not want to with the balance of the squad now, as well as the affordability.”

Wanyama, 28, is coming into his peak footballing years and to land the midfielder for any length of time should be seen as a major coup.

Fraser has come in from the cold and resurrected his stuttering career – Wanyama can do the same.
