Celtic could be in line for £4million windfall as mega transfer draws closer - report
By Tom Blackburn
Victor Wanyama’s proposed move from Southampton to Tottenham could prove to be lucrative for Celtic due to a clause in the deal when he left Glasgow, according to a report.
The Glasgow Evening Times claim that Celtic’s sell-on fee is as high as 20 per cent, which could hand them a £4million windfall.
As reported by Football Insider, Spurs are closely monitoring Wanyama and could be ready to pay up to £20million for the midfield anchorman.
Wanyama moved to the Saints from Scotland in 2013 for £12.5 million; a record fee for any player being sold by a Scottish club, and has since gone on to become a key player in the team.
However, the Kenya international had a discipline problem in the 2015/16 season, receiving three red card from his 29 league appearances.
