Newcastle United are interested in Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Sunday Sun says the 21-year-old Kenyan’s agent has been working towards getting his £8million-rated player a move to the Premier League – with St James’ Park his preferred destination.

Arsenal have been closely watching Wanyama, man of the match in both of Celtic’s European games against Barcelona, as have Everton.
