Southampton still want Wanyama

Neil Lennon has revealed Southampton have renewed their interest

in Victor Wanyama, who has been left ‘a bit confused’ by the

uncertainty.

£12million-rated Celtic midfielder Wanyama was close

to a move to St Mary’s earlier in July after a transfer fee was

agreed but the deal reportedly broke down due to a failure to

settle personal terms.

Southampton, though, have not given up their pursuit of the

Kenyan star and, after Saturday’s 2-1 friendly defeat by Cluj,

Lennon has confirmed an offer to Celtic still exists.

“I had a chat with Victor and he’s a wee bit confused but what

we gather is that Southampton have re-ignited their interest,” said

Lennon in the Sunday Mail.

“They’ve shown an interest again and the bid is there. It’s all

about the negotiations between Saints and the agent now. I’d

imagine that might get the ball rolling again.

“I’ve only seen Victor for a couple of days but he trained with

the rest of the squad who didn’t play against Cluj.

“If nothing materialises, he’ll play some of the [friendly] game

on Tuesday against Greuther Furth.”
