Speculation about a move to Man United for the Kenyan international has been rife for weeks and there has been talk of a £12m switch for the 21 year old but Wanyama has decided to nip such talk in the bud.
“I can confirm to you that I will be at Celtic,” he told the Daily Record. “We are playing well and our Champions League dream is on right now, so I am looking forward to the big game against Juventus.”
“A lot has been said about my intended move but I have not given it much thought and even my manager feels I should play until the end of the season for Celtic,” he added.
“Then, from that point, the doors can be open for a move.”
Ferguson may well be concerned that his midfield is being too easily bypassed by the opposition, putting further strain on an under-performing back-line, hence the need to bring in a defensive midfielder.
The Scot will also be keen to freshen up a midfield that still relies heavily on old guard talents like Michael Carrick, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.
Wanyama’s displays against Barcelona will have gone someway to displaying to watching scouts that he can perform at the very highest level with some aplomb.
