Speculation surrounding Victor Wanyama’s immediate future at Celtic had been in the spotlight recently with interest from Manchester United said to be very strong.
After Wanyama admitted Manchester United was his favourite team and Sir Alex Ferguson was at Celtic Park to watch him score against Dundee United, reports suggested that United were lining up a bid for him.
However, Wanyama has spoken early on transfer deadline day to quash any rumours of a possible move away from Celtic Park this January.
Speaking to The Daily Record, Wanyama said: “I can confirm to you that I will be at Celtic.
“We are playing well and our Champions League dream is on right now, so I am looking forward to the big game against Juventus.
“A lot has been said about my intended move but I have not given it much thought and even my manager feels I should play until the end of the season for Celtic.
“Then, from that point, the doors can be open for a move.”
The 21-year-old defensive midfielder has been integral to Celtic’s UEFA Champions League success and Neil Lennon will be happy to know he has his best midfielder available for the visit of Juventus in two weeks.
Wanyama did not rule out the possibility of a move away in the summer after saying that “the doors can be open for a move” in the summer, making it likely that the Kenyan will once again be linked with a move away from Celtic Park come the end of the season.
