Kenya midfielder Victor Wanyama's agent, Rob Moore, claims his client is still awaiting a firm offer from the club but is unlikely to extend a deal which still has three years to run.
With Celtic keen to reap £10million for the Kenyan international, however, improved terms will allow them to demand top dollar for the midfielder.
'We can confirm that, although Celtic have intimated they wish to offer him a new deal, we have not had any offer to improve on Victor's contract,” Moore told daily mail. “Obviously, given his progress and standing within Scottish football, we would expect that to be recognized."
“He came in on an "entry-level" deal, but is now established as one of the best young midfielders in Europe.” “Because of that, it is not unreasonable that it is recognised and he is rewarded accordingly."
“There have been reports of a long-term deal, but Victor still has three years left on his contract, anyway, so we probably don't see the benefit of extending.” “I believe Celtic would look for a substantial transfer fee for him, therefore, it would only be right that they follow that up with improving his current deal.”
