Ledley tips Wanyama to star
Celtic midfielder Joe Ledley has tipped Victor Wanyama to be a
huge success if he moves to the Premier League.
Wanyama has been linked with a summer move to the likes of
Cardiff and Southampton but Ledley believes the player who joined
from Belgian club Beerschot for Â£900,000 two years ago
could secure an even bigger move.
“He can play for a top team in the Premier League easily,”
Ledley told the Daily Record.
“He’s got great potential and if he can get to a top club it
would be fantastic to go up against him in the Champions League in
“Anyone who saw him in that competition last year will know how
good he is.
“There will be pressure on Victor going down there, especially
with the price-tag. But it will be a stroll in the park for him as
it will suit the way he plays.
“I’m surprised none of the top clubs have come in for him but
it’s early days in the transfer window.”
He added: “The Celtic fans know how good Victor is and realise
we got him at a steal.
“He’s been great but it looks like he’ll continue his career
somewhere else now.
“I knew straight away we had a special player on our hands and
now he might break the Scottish transfer record if he goes.
“You could see how mature he was for his age and how composed on
the ball he was. Nothing fazes him.”
Celtic have slapped a Â£12million price-tag on the
22-year-old Kenya international but that is unlikely to deter
Premier League clubs from making their move.
