Speculation regarding Wanyama's future has built steadily throughout the winter window, with Manchester United among those said to be closely monitoring his situation.

The highly-rated 21-year-old is paying little attention to the rumours, though, with it his intention to see out the season at Parkhead - allowing him to form part of Celtic's squad for the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League.

"I can confirm to you that I will be at Celtic," Wanyama told the Daily Record.

"We are playing well and our Champions League dream is on right now, so I am looking forward to the big game against Juventus.

"A lot has been said about my intended move but I have not given it much thought and even my manager feels I should play until the end of the season for Celtic.

"Then, from that point, the doors can be open for a move."
