Kenyan Football Association's president states his belief that Victor Wanyama is preparing to leave Celtic, with Manchester United believed to be interested.

The president of the Kenyan Football Association has reignited speculation that Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama could join Manchester United before this month's transfer window closes.

Twenty-one-year-old Wanyama has long been linked with the Premier League leaders, whose manager Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to have recently watched the Kenya international in action.

While refusing to name which team Wanyama will be signing for, president Sam Nyamweya insisted that he will join "one of the big two clubs in the world" in the near future.

"Wanyama will soon be joining one of the big two clubs in the world. It is an exciting moment for us, which means that Kenya is a powerhouse in football," he said.

The Nairobi-born midfielder arrived at Celtic from Belgian side Germinal Beerschot in 2011.
