Victor Wanyama insists he is going nowhere as rumours linking the powerful Kenyan away from Celtic persist.

The Celtic midfielder has been the driving force behind the resurgence of the Glasgow side in recent months which has seen them overhaul a 15-point gap with rivals Rangers at the top of the SPL.

The 20-year-old is the first to admit it took him some time to settle in since moving from Germinal Beerschot in Belgium for a fee of just £1million, but now his displays have made him a candidate for player of the season.

And despite having caught the attention of some of the biggest clubs in Europe, Wanyama says he is enjoying life in Scotland and has no plans to leave anytime soon.

"Why would I be thinking of leaving?" he said. "This is my home. I am very happy here, I only came in the summer and I am enjoying my football and my life.

"I have worked very hard to learn the pace of the game in Scotland and to settle in and I feel that is showing on the pitch.

"Celtic is a huge club and I knew that before I came here. I am really enjoying it, the fans have been very good to me and the club has been very good to me."
