Reports in Holland suggesting we are interested in PSV right back Joshua Brenet.

Agree0 Disagree1

20 Jun 2017 19:56:09
I was reading that Celtic are after Real Madrid forward Mariano Diaz. No idea how reliable the source is, but would be the kind of signing that would get fans excited!

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Jun 2017 20:10:10
Anyone know if there is any real interest from Celtic?

20 Jun 2017 21:11:04
Someone posted about Celtic linked to him a few weeks back.

20 Jun 2017 23:40:30
I had heard ages ago that Real Madrid have been keeping tabs on Dembele, could it be possible that Mariano is included in the deal?

21 Jun 2017 10:12:28
I got told if they could not get Daz they were after Van PERSIL lol.

21 Jun 2017 20:58:07
They've slapped a £15m price tag on him so that won't happen.

21 Jun 2017 22:59:25
Nothing great will be coming in, prob might get the atomic ant if can scrape 1.5m together, these transfer rumours laughable of all these players supposed to be signing who will want 50g a week, we got to be realistic, got to go for bargain bucket and hope the players that come in are decent, that's the reality.

20 Jun 2017 11:13:19
A few sources in the Netherlands linking us with Joshua Brenet. A very good RB who can also play LB if needed. I don't think we're in immediate need of a RB but I'd have Brenet in over Gamboa (who is set to miss the start of the season? ) and in time I wouldn't be surprised to see him overtake Lustig due to his pace and the general longevity of the situation. Heard anything on this one Ed?

{Ed007's Note - No.}

Agree1 Disagree2

20 Jun 2017 12:53:12
Dutch international and fits into our normal signing criteria age-wise. Seems a decent player and I don't think Gamboa's really convinced.

19 Jun 2017 23:00:37
Any news of us wanting Lovro Majer.

Agree1 Disagree4

19 Jun 2017 11:38:59
Celtic will play Linfield or SP La Fiorita in the Champions League 2nd qualifying round. 12th July?

Agree1 Disagree0

19 Jun 2017 13:24:52
In Belfast during orange walk, That'll be murder!

19 Jun 2017 14:36:23
I hope we play Fiorita tbh, getting to old for this shit, as detective murtaugh once said, would be absolute chaos imo.

19 Jun 2017 15:15:31
david healey as linfield manager too haha.

19 Jun 2017 15:51:46
Isn't happening on the 12th.

19 Jun 2017 15:51:58
Highly unlikely the game will be sanction on 11th or 12th of July. Policy will not be able to police both the match and the walks. I'd imagine the clubs may be asked to switch the fixture to Celtic home first game.

{Ed007's Note - It's been rumoured it'll be played on the 11th with an early K.O.}

19 Jun 2017 16:32:35
I very much doubt it will be over there on the 11th or the 12th.
Too many people will be travelling and tell Police will be stretched thin as it is.
Add to that that most of the hotels bnbs ferries and flights will be booked up well in advance for the knuckle scrappers to go marching.
Just can't see it.

20 Jun 2017 09:59:22
aye @ed007 i read their chairman, chief executive, bond master or what ever call him that they wanted it to be a 5 oclock. id play hard ball with them and insisted on 7.45 kick off. why should their bigotry get in the way of a CL qualifier.

21 Jun 2017 01:54:04
Guys-it's just like drawing Airdrie at Broomfield. Bit of friendly banter with the away supporters. But I wouldn't take a ticket for it free! ☘️.

18 Jun 2017 11:19:44
See some of the papers are reporting that Everton might come in for Dembelle, that might be a good bit of business all round,30 million plus James McCarthy sounds like good business and a nice pot to source a couple of good signings with. That would be progress which would please the board and keep us plebs dreams of CL and 10 in a row going strong.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jun 2017 11:51:22
I hope he stays but this could be a great move for him if true as lukaku is leaving and could end up with plenty game time.

18 Jun 2017 13:05:33
£30m + McCarthy would be an amazing bit of business.

18 Jun 2017 16:12:58
£30m + McCarthy. Rodgers could do some damage with that sort of money without even dipping into his own budget/ champions league or potential VVD money.

That sort of money could pay for the likes of

Jean-Kevin Duverne
Paddy Roberts
Henry Onyekuru
Sardar Azmoun.

18 Jun 2017 16:15:05
Is McCarthy going to take a big drop in wages then?, I would like McCarthy in but I would prefer to keep Dembelle for another year, his value is only going to increase.

18 Jun 2017 16:52:07
Nowhere have I seen £30m + McCarthy quoted. I honestly think £23m + McCarthy + a 10 per cent sell on clause would be amazing biz! Hope I am totally wrong btw. HH!

18 Jun 2017 17:01:52
Clutching at straws lads, no way would we get 30 plus mccarthy.

18 Jun 2017 19:41:05
10m plus McCarthy would be tremendous business. HH.

18 Jun 2017 21:45:46
I wish people would stop going on about McCarthy, for the last year or so he's been consistently injured . I also don't really see him controlling many games in the prem or for Ireland. For the outlay I'd think there is more important areas.

19 Jun 2017 09:47:07
35mill plus mcarthy plus 25 % add on / sell on clause. and they are still getting a bargain . they want him to replace lukaku which means they think he's up to the job . do you think theyd accept 10 mill plus an ok player plus 10% for lukaku. no chance. if he's going to the epl the so called greatest / richest league in the world then its epl transfer money. we don't need to sell. we gave away wanyama. foster . Virgil . with "its only spl he's playing in "mentality . no more.

19 Jun 2017 15:55:26
Why the rush to sell Dembelle and why link his sale with the purchase of Mc Carthy . Neither are realistic . I think that Celtic should sell Dembelle when it suits Celtic not the SMSM who would like nothing better than see Celtic sel their top stars too early and at a bad price.

19 Jun 2017 22:12:01
Bhoys i am betting now we don't sell dembele for more than £20 mill. let's not argue the point just wait till he is sold.

19 Jun 2017 22:13:29
its the papers that are trying to sell dembele, he hasn't told celtic he wants to leave.

17 Jun 2017 16:22:17
ED007 my pal at Celtic Pools says Roberts has been told by Man City that he is not in their plans, but have agreed for him to return for pre season to try and impress Guardiola, Celtic have apparently pulled out of bidding race, but have asked City to keep them informed, City if they sell, want £8-£10m plus buy back clause, is this what you have heard?
Cannot see Lawwell bidding anywhere near that amount, even though Paddy is worth it.

Agree3 Disagree5

17 Jun 2017 19:49:38
If they are after 8 million why not offer a structured payment that suits us? 4 million this summer and 4 million next summer? Better than them sending him out on loan and picking up a small loan fee. I appreciate that all deals aren't exact money up front but we will get that back plus more after a season or 2.

17 Jun 2017 23:46:10
Can someone explain, how we could afford Paddy Roberts wages, he can get a lot more money playing down south, it's a pipedream he is coming here, unless he is one of the people who value quality of life over monetary gain, not personally knowing the guy, i have no idea, I have no time for the Beckham's and Rooney's of this world, who with the money they 'earn', could buy equipment for their local hospitals, but choose instead to fill garages with fancy cars or throw it away on roulette wheels, as someone once said 'somethings going to change'

18 Jun 2017 00:33:04
My favourite of all time group said it Aindoh. the stranglers.

18 Jun 2017 12:12:41
Can we all be a bit sensible here.
Structured payments? We wouldn't bid £8-10m for Roberts?

Paddy would be getting a wage increase at Parkhead, with full knowledge that a move the following season would materialise.
It's a win/ win for him.
Guaranteed he signs after we qualify.

18 Jun 2017 16:06:29
jeezo foxi you had me going there lol.

18 Jun 2017 17:13:30
Aindoh I agree with your sentiments if I was ever in a fortunate position to have all those millions ad help various charities and kids organisations but look at 1 of our own shareholders he buys an island for £80mill and we don't pass judgment think of the good that could do it's not the players faults clubs are willing to pay these kinds of salaries it's the fans willing to pay there subscriptions to sky no sky no silly wages.

19 Jun 2017 15:59:18
One thing is sure there are a hell of a lot more Scottish people paying Wee fortunes to watch English EPL rubbish, than English paying to watch Scottish. Ireland full of Sky EPL experts.

19 Jun 2017 22:09:26
pogoing, i put ed as in punk rock dancing.

17 Jun 2017 12:21:45
Celtic have put a bid in to Lens, said to be around 5 million Euros, for Jean-Kevin Duverne.

Agree6 Disagree2

17 Jun 2017 12:55:25
Where u hearing this ED? Not see the boy play but see he's only 19! U seen much of him mate? What's our chances of getting him?

{Ed007's Note - He's very highly rated and clubs like Liverpool and Spurs have been scouting Duverne who has been compared to Raphael Varane. We're the only club that has made a move with an offer so we'll see how it pans out, like most youngsters gametime is very important to him as he doesn't want to sit on the bench anywhere.}

17 Jun 2017 13:16:17
Cheers ED! Must admit I'm happy we're making moves to bring a decent centre half in! Think it's a must for Europe especially!

{Ed007's Note - It looks like Sviatchenko might leave during this window and Duverne would be a cracking replacement.}

17 Jun 2017 13:34:35
He'd be a cracking signing.

17 Jun 2017 15:20:32
Can't really comment on the lad but I remember reading in january how highly regarded he was in France. Looks really good in the challenge as well as having the pace and power from the clips I've seen and if he's being compared by the Lens fans to their former player Varane then I really hope this materialises.

17 Jun 2017 15:45:52
He seems to be very highly rated. No chance Jozo will leave in my opinion he's going to play a no play a big part champions league campaign reckon. If Erik leaves I won't grudge it, surely he's worth 3-4million?

17 Jun 2017 17:07:00
Looked up the boy, plays in France 2nd tier. Just missed out on promotion this year! No caps at any level for France. price seems a bit steep for me!

17 Jun 2017 22:16:44
have you seen his date of birth? lol.

17 Jun 2017 22:42:48
😂😂😂😂😂 aye a seen that jamesbhoy! 🙈🙈😂😂.

18 Jun 2017 16:10:09
What has happened to Eboue. He came in for £3.5mill but has hardly kicked a ball. Know he is only 19 much same as Duvern but when you pay that much you hope to see them improve the side.

19 Jun 2017 22:57:43
Celtic are reported to have said today that they wern't interested in Duverne . Does that mean we won't be signing him or is the reported denial just more rubbish.

17 Jun 2017 11:26:07
Hello ed

Do Celtic still have any interest in James McCarthy or is the interest long gone?

{Ed007's Note - Celtic and McCarthy are still hopeful a deal can be done with Everton.}

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Jun 2017 12:09:40
Great to hear. Would be some signing.

{Ed007's Note - I think so too.}

17 Jun 2017 13:42:08
Duverne, Roberts, McCarthy, Onyekuru.

We'd win the CL haha.

17 Jun 2017 14:02:40
Any idea how much they want for mccarthy?

{Ed007's Note - No.}

17 Jun 2017 14:04:15
How does that work ed, are both Scottish and English teams not governed by the same home office rules regarding work permits?

{Ed007's Note - He's a much better chance of using the exceptional talent rules to gain a work permit for a Scottish team than in the English game. We've used it for Wanyama and more recently for Eboue Kouassi.}

17 Jun 2017 14:19:25
Never seen the bhoy but hope he's a good yin quite a big fee for a youngster but hopefully worth it.

17 Jun 2017 14:25:24
Cheers ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

17 Jun 2017 16:23:53
Signing Onekuru could bring problems for us in the longer term . If he didn't improve his % of international appearances we may have a player who doesn't qualify for a work permit in England and hence resale value may not be great.

17 Jun 2017 16:16:25
Ed007 . Thank you far clarification that a work permit for a footballer can be easier to obtain in Scotland than in England .
I think it was two years ago when I tried to make that point but I was laughed at and sneered at .
Long runs the fox but in the end he is caught.

17 Jun 2017 10:26:32
Any of the EDS now if we are still after Henry Onyekuru or not?

{Ed007's Note - We're still interested but the fee is too high while there's so many interested parties in England but all of them will find it difficult - maybe even impossible - to gain a work permit for him, even under the 'exceptional talent' rules. It would be easier for him to gain a work permit if he signed for us.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jun 2017 14:12:32
I read somewhere that if teams spend more on his transfer fee it becomes easier to gain a permit. No idea if there's any truth in that.

{Ed007's Note - English clubs could pay an inflated fee and seriously inflated wages but there's still no guarantees from what I know about it all.}
