Kenya and Celtic FC midfielder Victor Wanyama says he is unaware that English side Southampton have tabled £10million-plus deal (Sh1.4billion) to lure him from Park head.
Wanyama, who currently is on holiday in Kenya, has reveled to Goal that his agent has not spoken to him about any offer from the Saints and that “I am currently enjoying my deserved holiday.’
“I have just heard of the same interest in the media and currently I am on holiday enjoying myself. I will speak to my agent later to find out the true position.
“I don’t think it will be appropriate for me to speak about something I am not aware about. My agent knows everything that is happening and he has not contacted me so for now I want to enjoy my holiday.”
English papers reported on Thursday that the premiership outfit have made contact with the Scottish giants and are hoping to strike a quick agreement for the combative midfielder.
But the Saints’ move could also spark a fierce transfer scrap with other English clubs and potentially some abroad. Arsenal have been trailing the Kenyan over the last year and put him on a shortlist of targets.
New Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is another admirer, having failed with an offer at the start of last season when he was in charge of QPR.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool have also been scouting Wanyama, whose storming displays in the Champions League led Uefa to list him as one of the best talents in Europe.
