Wanyama to stay with Celtic

Victor Wanyama has ended speculation about his future by pledging to remain with Celtic and help them to a domestic treble.

Wanyama, 21, has enjoyed a superb campaign with the Hoops, leading to links with a number of Premier League sides but Wanyama has handed Celtic a boost by stating he wants to remain in the east end of Glasgow.

He said: "I'm happy here and I love it here at Celtic so I'll be here next season. I still have a contract with Celtic and I'm happy at the club so I think I'll still be here.

"We want to do better than this season so if we can get the treble next season, it will be a very good achievement for me. That's my dream for next season. Also, playing in the Champions League again."

In October, Celtic manager Neil Lennon claimed Wanyama was worth £25 million, and the player is happy with his manager’s faith in him.

"What the manager says is his opinion so if he thinks I'm worth that, it's fine with me,” he said.

The Kenyan is the only Celtic player to be nominated for the Scotland's young player of the year award. However, he is keen to keep developing and improving his game than sit back and accept the plaudits.

He said: “It means a lot to me. I've had a good season. I'm very grateful and I want to thank my team-mates for giving me the chance to be here and having a good season. For me, as a player, I believe that football is a game of learning. The more you play, the more you learn.

He added: "I'm very surprised [none of my team-mates have been nominated] because they have had a very good season and the team has had a good season. There are a lot of players individually who have had a very good season and I'm just gutted that they're not here with me."
