Celtic star Victor Wanyama insists he is happy at the club, despite being strongly linked with a summer move to England.

A host of Premier League clubs were trailing the 21-year-old midfielder, but a move never materialised.

Wanyama had suggested he could move, which angered manager Neil Lennon, but he remains a hugely important figure and has again proved that so far this term.

Now Celtic are believed to be keen on handing the 21- year-old a new deal.

"I leave these things for the club and my agent but I'm really happy here and looking forward to staying for as many years as I can," he told the Daily Record.

"All I do is concentrate on the football.

"Celtic is a big club and we are in the Champions League so I don't think there is anywhere better.

"Playing in Europe is a bonus for us and it is easier to be seen all around the world because they are watching the Champions League.

"You cannot get a greater atmosphere than here at Celtic so it's perfect.

"Before the Benfica game was unreal. Standing in front of a 60,000 crowd and knowing it was live on television was great.

"The excitement gives you more energy to keep on going."
