Celtic star Victor Wanyama has dismissed reports he could be subject for a January move to Manchester United.

The 21-year-old Kenyan international has been a revelation at Parkhead since arriving in the SPL from Belgian side Beerschot in the summer of 2011, attracting interest from a host of different clubs.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is an admirer of the combative midfielder, and reportedly sent scouts to Celtic Park at the weekend, to run the rule over him, with a view to bringing him to the Premier League.

Wanyama is currently in discussions with Celtic over improving his contract - which currently runs until 2015 - and insisted he is paying no attention to speculation linking him with Old Trafford.

"I have heard a lot about my intended move to several clubs, the latest being Manchester United," he told "Personally I just think those are rumours.

"My focus now remains with my team Celtic, whom I want to help in both the domestic and Champions League."

Wanyama has established himself as a key figure in Neil Lennon's side, and played a pivotal role in the recent Champions League group stage victory in Russia, a 3-2 win at Spartak Moscow.

"Leaving Celtic will not be easy," he added. "They cannot just let me go [as] easily as many people think.

"All in all am happy here and looking forward to continue playing for them as I work hard in my career."
