Since last night when we reported there had been murmurings from London claiming Celtic were trying to pull off an audacious move to re-sign Victor Wanyama – Record Sport are now claiming the deal could happen by the end of today.
We have billed this as a long shot and so does RecordSport. Celtic can’t possibly afford to bring Vic back in permanently and again if any move were to happen Spurs would have to pay a substantial amount of the midfielder’s wages.
If Celtic have asked the question with the clock ticking down Spurs might be willing to do a deal.
The transfer window closes at midnight tonight. Greg Taylor looks poised to join Celtic before that deadline but it’s not completely finished at this point.
Celtic fans have been let down a lot of times on deadline day when they’ve got their hopes up about deals. Wanyama is still very much a long shot.
