Neil Lennon admits he is 'not surprised' by Manchester United and Arsenal's reported interest in Victor Wanyama but has stressed he is a Celtic player.

The 21-year-old Kenyan, who can play at centre-back and in midfield, is thought to have caught the eye of the Premier League heavyweights this summer.

Wanyama, who joined Celtic last summer from Belgian side Beerschot, has previously said he would be open to an English move.

Hoops boss Lennon knows interest in the versatile youngster is inevitable but has no desire to sell him.

He said: "He is a quality young player but like I said before he is our player and we are very pleased to have him here."
