Club insisting on signing Celtic player, will not give up, Bhoys want ‘good amount of money’

By Lucas Sposito As reported by sportswitness.co.uk On Tuesday, the Scottish Sun had a story saying Porto are serious overing signing Olivier Ntcham from Celtic, and would be ready to make an offer of £14m for the midfielder. Newspaper A Bola today brings an article covering The Sun’s claims, and all they add is that the Dragons will not give up on chasing the player. A Bola writes that Porto already tried in the last summer window, now they’re making a new attempt, and if they fail once again, there will be a new effort at the end of the season. The only thing that could stop a January deal are Celtic’s demands. A Bola claims that the Scottish side are looking to make ‘a good amount of money’. Embed from Getty Images Meanwhile, Porto are said to be confident that Ntcham wants to join them, especially for their good campaign in the Portuguese Liga NOS and the Champions League. A Bola continues mentioning that Ntcham isn’t getting the best treatment from Celtic fans since the match against Rangers, so they probably believe that would be a factor for his departure as well.

Celtic striker target to make decision on his future within 48 hours

By Ryan Darby Highly-rated Sunderland striker Josh Maja will reportedly make a decision on his future within the next 48 hours. According to claims made by the Daily Record, a decision is imminent from the striker, with interest rising. The report claims that Celtic are one of the teams in the running to sign the striker, while there is also interest in France, Germany and the Premier League. Maja has impressed this season with 15 goals in League One and the forward has been stalling on a new contract at Sunderland. His current deal expires in the summer, meaning the January window is the last opportunity Sunderland have to cash in, or they face losing him for nothing at the end of the season. The prospect of the player joining a top-flight club and returning to Sunderland on loan is not being ruled out at this stage, while it is also claimed a number of teams believe he is ready for first-team football straight away.

Reported 15-goal striker target can be the next Moussa Dembele at Celtic

By Jay Williams As reported by tbrfootball.com, According to The Scottish Sun, Celtic are intent on signing Sunderland wonder-kid Josh Maja. As part of the deal, Jack Hendry or Lewis Morgan could head to Sunderland on loan. Maja would be a tremendous signing for Celtic, who need to look to the long-term future as well as players who can make an immediate impact. The 20-year-old is one of the best young talents in the English Football League and is unsurprisingly in high demand. Given his goal scoring record this season and his contract situation, Celtic must prioritise a swoop for Maja. The London-born striker has scored 15 goals in 29 games this season, which is a remarkable record for such a young player. (Photo by Matthew Ashton – AMA/Getty Images) This deal could be similar to the one Celtic struck to land Moussa Dembele from Fulham back in summer 2016. The Frenchman had netted 17 times in 46 games for Championship side Fulham in the 2015/16 season and was regarded as one of the best young strikers playing in England. Maja is in a similar position now and could look at Dembele’s success in Celtic as a blueprint for his career. Dembele netted 51 goals in two seasons for Celtic before his …read more

Celtic deny interest in deal to sign ex-England international

By Ryan Darby Celtic are not interested in a deal to sign Micah Richards from Aston Villa this month. The Daily Record have squashed rumours linking the former England international with a move to Scotland. Claims made on social media earlier this week suggested that the player could be on his way to Parkhead, but the Daily Record claims there is ‘no chance’ of a deal happening. Richards has seen his career stall while at Aston Villa, with the defender struggling with injuries and a lack of fitness as a result of his limited playing time. Injuries have seen the former Manchester City defender fall by the wayside at Villa Park, with a huge contract making it difficult for the Championship side to offload him. Richards’ current deal expires at the end of the season and he looks set to leave Villa after four years at the club. After being dubbed as the next big thing during his younger days, he’ll be hoping he can get his career back on track with his next move, wherever that may be.

Alan Rough reckons Celtic ‘have a chance’ of landing powerhouse on a free transfer

By Will Butcher As published by hitc.com, Celtic have been linked with a move for the free agent midfielder. Alan Rough has told PLZ Soccer that he reckons Celtic have a chance of luring veteran Yaya Toure to Parkhead this month after the midfielder became a free agent in December. The 35-year-old left Manchester City in the summer after winning three Premier League titles at The Etihad, joining former club Olympiakos. However, he managed just five appearances and has since cancelled his contract. Greek outlet Gazzetta.gr claimed that Celtic were planning a move to land the 97-time Ivory Coast international, and Toure himself told Sky Sports that perhaps his brother Kolo – who is a coach at Celtic – could help arrange a move. “Celtic’s a great team. Let me speak with Brendan and we will see. Maybe Kolo is arranging something for me,” Toure said. Now, former Celtic player Rough – who is now a director at Scottish Premiership side St. Mirren – is a co-host with PLZ Soccer and he claimed that Celtic have a chance of signing powerhouse midfielder Toure. “I think it all depends on his relationship with the Toure that’s there,” Rough The post <a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" …read more

‘No Chance’ – Celtic Source Shoots Down Defender Transfer Claim

By CeltsAreHere First published by celtsarehere.com Celtic really need to get a move on with regards to bringing in defensive reinforcements. There are just over two weeks left of this current transfer window and after a promising start with a flurry of signings while in Dubai, things have seemed to stall.

Micah Richards name was bandied about after very soft media reports linked the Aston Villa reject with a move to the Scottish Champions. However, Michael Gannon at RecordSport was on the case, and while Celtic sources don’t tend to pipe up when there’s a deal close for someone, they do usually quash any outlandish rumours. ‘Sources’ have said there is ‘no chance’ of the English defender ending up at Celtic Park before the window closes which would abruptly put that rumour to bed.
