Victor Wanyama has ruled out the possibility of swapping Celtic for Manchester United in January.

The Kenyan midfielder has made a huge impression for Neil Lennon's Celtic and speculation in recent days suggested United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was plotting a £12 million bid.

Wanyama has admitted he has designs on progressing his career, but his focus for the remainder of the season is Celtic - with a Champions League clash with Juventus whetting his appetite.

"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."
