Southampton-owned goalkeeper Fraser Forster has suggested to The Scottish Sun that Tottenham Hotspur defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama wants to move to Celtic.

Forster has joined Scottish Premiership giants Celtic on loan from Premier League outfit Southampton in the summer transfer window.

The 31-year-old goalkeeper had loan spells at the Hoops from Newcastle United in 2010-11 and 2011-12 before making the move permanent in 2012 and joined the Saints in 2014.

 

Wanyama played for Celtic from 2011 until 2013 before leaving for Southampton.

The Kenya international defensive midfielder and Forster played together at Celtic and Southampton, and the latter has disclosed what the 28-year-old has told him on a phone call.

Forster told The Scottish Sun: “I picked it, yeah. But Victor was straight onto me after the game. He’s on at me and saying keep my shirt warm for a bit!”

Back to Celtic?

Wanyama - who earns £65,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - has struggled to play regularly for Tottenham over the past two seasons due to injury issues, but the 28-year-old is a very good defensive midfielder.

Celtic could do with someone of the Kenyan’s quality and calibre, and the former Beerschot star would be a brilliant signing for Celtic.
