Southampton deal in place for Celtic midfielder Wanyama

Southampton are wrapping up a deal for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Southampton are wrapping up a deal for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Scottish Sun says Hoops last night agreed a record-breaking £10million-plus fee with Southampton for Wanyama.

Celtic have officially granted Wanyama, 21, permission to talk to the Premier League side.

Wanyama admitted last night that he is weighing up a megabucks move — with just personal terms to be thrashed out.

The huge Wanyama fee will shatter the Scottish record of £9.5m Spartak Moscow paid Celtic for Aiden McGeady in 2010.

It will also represent a massive profit on a young player signed from Belgian minnows Beerschot for just £900,000 two years ago.
