The Kenyan international became a cult hero at Celtic Park during his two-year stay in Glasgow between 2011 and 2013, with his goal against Barcelona in the 2012/13 Champions League group stages one of the highlights of his spell in Scottish football.
Now 28, Wanyama has cemented himself as a Premier League midfielder, but his lack of game time at current club Tottenham led to rumours of a possible return to Celtic, as we told you last month.
And now Lennon has admitted he was interested in the deal, and even hinted the move could be revived in January.
Speaking via the Sun, he said: “There was interest but it never got off the ground.
“Could we look at it again in January? We’ll have to wait and see.
“We might not want to with the balance of the squad now, as well as the affordability.”
Of course, Celtic have plenty of midfield options, with the likes of Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, Nir Bitton and Ryan Christie, but would signing a player like Wanyama be worth breaking the bank for?
