Good News: Victor Mugubi Wanyam has completed a medical test and agreed on personal terms with Southampton in a £12.5million deal that smashes the Scottish transfer record.
Game Yetu Sports Blog can authoritatively confirm that this time round, the rumour is turned true.
The deal blows away the previous transfer record of £11m that Spartak Moscow paid Celtic for Aiden McGeady in the summer of 2010.
Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino thought he’d landed the 22-year-old Kenyan for £12m but the club had to increase the offer after soaring interest from Cardiff City.
Parkhead powerbroker Peter Lawwell has all but concluded business with Saints chief Nicola Cortese and personal terms have been agreed with the player. All parties expect to be in a position to announce the deal by Friday at the latest.
The Kenyan skipper was bought for just £900,000 from Beerschot two years ago and his move is fantastic business for Celtic.
