Victor Wanyama: Manchester City boss watched Celtic midfielder on Tuesday

Mancini saw the 21-year-old in action during Celtic's 3-0 UEFA Champions League loss to Juventus on Tuesday.

But the City boss rubbished suggestions that a move could be on the cards in his press conference ahead of Saturday's FA Cup tie with Leeds.

The Italian said: "I saw him for the first time against Juventus, I never saw him before.

"But every time I go to see a game, the next day people say 'Manchester City want to buy this player'."

When asked whether he would be interested in signing Wanyama, Mancini added: "At the moment, no. I think he is a good player."

The Kenyan joined Celtic in 2011 from Belgian side Beerschot AC. He has scored 12 goals in 79 appearances for the SPL champions.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
