Wanyama dismisses Manchester United transfer claims, says he is happy at Celtic

The combative midfielder says he doesn't want to leave the Scottish champions as he jets in for Tuesday night's friendly against South Africa
Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama insists he is happy to remain at Scottish giants Celtic-for now.

"Its not the adequate moment to discuss transfers because the window is not open anyway. We are at a crucial stage of the season, with games from the League and the Champions League (double header against Barcelona in the next month) coming up. We shall discuss about Manchester United or any other teams at the appropriate time."

Wanyama, who is strongly linked with a move to Manchester United ahead of the upcoming (January) transfer window, was speaking exclusively to Goal.com Kenya after arriving in the country on Wednesday evening from his European base to feature in the international friendly against South Africa on October 16 at Nyayo Stadium (7pm Kenya time).

Arsenal, Liverpool and QPR have also been credited with interest in the Kenyan in the past few months. "I am looking forward to meeting the new coach (Henri Michel) and some of the new call ups. Such friendlies are important in building a team and preparing for future engagements."

The defensive midfielder has scored four goals for his club this term, three in the league and one in the UEFA Champions League.
