Is Southampton Looking To Sign Mariga?

The talk about town is that Southampton is working at signing Victor Wanyama's big brother, Mariga onto the team.

According to UK paper, Mirror, Southampton are ready to make their Champions League push a family affair by snapping up Victor Wanyama's brother - Inter Milan midfielder McDonald Mariga.

Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino is plotting a January swoop for the 26-year-old, who plays alongside his younger sibling for Kenya's national team.

Mariga came close to joining Manchester City in January 2010, but could not get a work permit.

Wanyama has played a key role in the Saints' superb start to the season since a £12.5million summer move from Scottish champions Celtic.
