Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has claimed the club have done nothing wrong after accepting a bid from Southampton for star defender-cum-midfielder Victor Wanyama, Sky Sports reports.

Last week the SPL champions accepted a bid of around £12 million for the big Kenyan, though the player rejected the move after personal terms could not be agreed, and many have pointed the finger at Lennon by claiming that he is trying to push the 21-year-old out to St Mary’s.

However, Lennon was quick to defend himself by saying: “There’s been a lot of talk,” said Lennon. “We accepted a bid from Southampton, we’ve done nothing wrong.

“The ball is firmly in his representative’s court. We’re unhappy, as we dealt with it as professionally as possible.

“All we did was accept a bid from Southampton, a very good, progressive club. But there seems to be other parties wanting to block the deal.

“We felt the money was right for us, a good business deal for the club. Whether it resurfaces again, I don’t know.

“The fact we accepted a bid tells you we felt it matched our valuation of the player. I don’t know where we are with it at minute.”
