'Tottenham's demands made Celtic return impossible' - CF Montreal's Wanyama

 The former Kenya captain has revealed he was ready to accept a cut in his Spurs wages and return to his former club

CF Montreal midfielder Victor Wanyama has revealed he always wanted to return to Scottish Premiership club Celtic, but the demands from Tottenham Hotspur made it impossible.

Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon tried to sign the ex-Harambee Stars captain in January 2020 after he had fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham, but the demands made by the London club put a stop to the proposed move, even though Wanyama was willing to make a return to Parkhead while taking a salary cut.
