Mauricio Pochettino claims that a deal to bring Celtic's Victor Wanyama to Southampton "could happen".

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that the club could still sign Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The 22-year-old is believed to be a target for a number of English clubs, including Liverpool and Cardiff City.

While Wanyama had recently suggested that he rejected a chance to move to St Mary's, PA Sport reports that Pochettino has claimed the move "could happen".

Pochettino has also expressed interest in Brazil international Leandro Damiao and Valencia's Ever Banega.
