Celtic boss Neil Lennon has confirmed the SPL club have accepted an offer from Southampton for midfielder Victor Wanyama.
The Kenyan has attracted interest from a number of Premier League sides, as well as other clubs based around Europe, after his impressive displays in the Champions League last term.
The SPL champions were eager to retain the services of the 22-year-old but have now decided it may be better if he was allowed to move on.
Although a bid has been accepted from the Saints, Lennon revealed that other clubs are still looking to try and sign the midfielder, insisting nothing is set in stone.
Lennon said: "What we have done is accepted a bid from Southampton, who are a very good club, a very progressive club.
"Personally, I think it would be a very good move for Victor in terms of his career going forward but there seems to be other bodies who want to block the deal.
"The ball is firmly in the court of Victor's representatives. You don't know what's around the corner. I would imagine there would be other interested parties but we've had no confirmation from any other clubs yet."
