It’s often said that a player should never go back, but the outstanding form from Fraser Forster this season has shown that’s not always true.
It’s clear that Victor Wanyama is out of favour at Spurs despite the arrival of Jose Mourinho, so his connection with Celtic meant it was an obvious transfer rumour in January.
According to The Daily Record he was close to moving to France before the deal fell through, but he may not be a Spurs player for much longer.

It’s all a bit cryptic at this point, but the report goes on to say that Wanyama’s brother had been talking about the former Celtic man getting British citizenship, although it’s not clear if that’s connected to this announcement.
They add that his agent will announce if he’s leaving Spurs and which club he’ll join in the next few days. Most transfer windows are closed but MLS teams can still register new players, so that could be a possible destination.
There was a feeling at Celtic that it was hard to see where he might fit into the team if he did return, but the lack of presence in midfield against Copenhagen showed he could still be valuable.
It seems unlikely that this announcement will be Celtic related, but it will be interesting to see what lies in store for him next.
