“…come home”, “we need a bit muscle in midfield” – Some Celtic’s fans wants reunion with £10m-rated PL star


The last weekend Old Firm derby was not in Celtic’s favour.

Although the Hoops are still first in the table, but the loss to Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side means that they have just a two-point lead over their bitter rivals. And the Ibrox outfits currently have a game in hand over Celtic.

As it is the winter transfer month, tensions and emotions are high as to which player could be shown the exit way and the one(s) that will make it as the latest club signing.

That has seen some Celtic fans already made it clear that they would welcome the return of Victor Wanyama back to the club this month.

See some of the best tweets below…

Wanyama had left Celtic in the summer of 2013 to join Mauricio Pochettino at AFC Southampton wherein The Hoops received a fee of £12.5million.

The Kenyan again, left Southampton to join Pochettino at Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2016 for a fee of £11million.

So far this season for Spurs, Wanyama has only four appearances in all competitions to his name for Spurs. All the 28-years-old appearances in the Premier League and the Champions League have come from the bench. But he has made one start and that came in the League Cup game against Colchester.

Wanyama, who is rated at £10m as per TransferMarkt, best season at Spurs came in the 2016-17 season when he played 47 times in all competitions that season, scoring five times and assisting once.

He helped the club finish second in the Premier League that season. But after that, the midfielder has missed 47 games through injury and two of them have been knee injuries.

While it cannot be argue that Wanyama has not been at his best over the last two season, it’s also worth knowing that if fit, he can do a very good job for a Premiership side Celtic.

Wanyama has all it takes to be the successor to Scott Brown and would add depth to the midfield, with familiar surroundings still present to help him settle in quickly.
