Wanyama not looking to leave Celtic

Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama insists he is not looking to leave the club after his eye-catching displays.

Wanyama, 20, has produced some powerful displays in recent weeks after settling in following his summer move from Germinal Beerschot in Belgium.

The Kenyan, who cost Celtic almost £1 million, scored the second goal of his Parkhead career during Monday's 3-0 win over Dunfermline, which kept Neil Lennon's men top of the SPL.

Wanyama, who volleyed home Charlie Mulgrew's deep free-kick, said in the Evening Times: "Why would I be thinking of leaving? This is my home.

"I am very happy here, I only came in the summer and I am enjoying my football and my life. I have worked very hard to learn the pace of the game in Scotland and to settle in and I feel that is showing on the pitch.

"Celtic is a huge club and I knew that before I came here. I am really enjoying it, the fans have been very good to me and the club has been very good to me.''

Lennon has been thrilled with the impact made by Wanyama, whose form should help lessen the blow of Beram Kayal's ankle injury, which is expected to keep him out during the whole of January.

"He has been terrific,'' Lennon said. "He has got real presence. I didn't think he passed the ball as well as he could against Dunfermline at times, but he gets the ball back for us very, very well.

"He is composed and physically a real athlete. Again, he has weighed in with a goal, which I'm thrilled about."
