Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama has dealt a blow to any Premier League sides hoping to sign him this summer by reiterating his desire to stay at the SPL club, according to The Express.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal held high hopes of being able to tempt the Kenyan away from Parkhead after he turned down a contract extension last October. The Premier League duo are said to have had the 21-year-old scouted extensively in the face of the upcoming transfer window.

However, the powerhouse has insisted that he is more than happy to remain with the Scottish champions.

“I’m happy at Celtic, I love it here. I’ll be here next season. I haven’t spoken to my agent because I’ve been concentrating on playing football,” he said.

“I haven’t thought about leaving so there’s been no need to speak to him.”

“I feel I’m at the right club and I’m happy. It’s good to be linked with big clubs because it gives me a big boost to work harder and keep doing well.”

Wanyama is valued at around £10 million, though, Neil Lennon went on record earlier this season stating it would take a bid of at least £25 million for the club to even consider selling him.

The player has made 47 appearances this season, scoring nine goals, the most notable of which came against Barcelona in the group stages of the Champions League last year.
