The father of Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama says a decision over his future will be made next week.

The Kenya international is a target for Cardiff City and Southampton.

The 21-year-old's father, Noah Wanyama – whose other son McDonald Mariga stars for Inter Milan – told the Evening Times he expects Victor's future to be decided one way or the other this week.

He said: "My son will make a sober decision. Be patient, he will make a decision in the coming days.

"I have talked to him and, while I am not going to interfere in any way with his decision about his future, it is my place to advise him.

"But I make it a point never to interfere with my sons' professional affairs. They are mature enough to make sensible decisions.

"All I do is to give them fatherly advice to ensure they are not carried away by their status.

"My sons have never let me down. Their discipline has been great. I ensured they grew up the way I taught them. I am a disciplinarian, and self-control was instilled in them."
