Celtic boss Neil Lennon has hinted that the club might make a January move for Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Kenyan international, who came close to sealing a move to Belgian side Club Brugge prior to the international break, before the deal broke down, was signed by Lennon for less than £1million back in 2011 before he exceeded expectations at Celtic Park and joined Southampton two years later.

Wanyama was an unused substitute in Tottenham’s 4-0 Premier League victory on Saturday and hasn’t made an appearance for Spurs since their final day draw with Everton in May.

And Lennon suggested that the Scottish champions, who tried to sign their former midfielder earlier this month, might make another attempt to sign him in January window.

“There was interest but it never got off the ground,” the Northern Irishman said after he was questioned about Wanyama.

“Could we look at it again in January? We’ll have to wait and see. We might not want to with the balance of the squad now, as well as the affordability.”
