Celtic: Hoops agree deal to sign Oliver Abildgaard -Celtic News

Celtic have reached an ‘agreement’ to sign Rubin Kazan midfielder Oliver Abildgaard, according to transfer insider Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Haksabanovic connection

Ange Postecoglou completed the signing of Sead Haksabanovic earlier in the summer, and it appears that he won’t be the only player from Leonid Slutsky’s side making his way to the Premiership.

The 26-year-old is believed to want out of the Russian club due to the ongoing war on Ukraine, and the Celtic boss confirmed the Hoops’ interest during an interview on Wednesday night.

The Latest: Celtic set to sign Abildgaard

Taking to Twitter, Romano stated that Celtic are waiting on the final details to be processed before unveiling Abildgaard at Parkhead.

He wrote: “Celtic are now set to sign Danish midfielder Oliver Abildgaard. Deal in place, agreement has been reached now waiting to sign contracts.”

The Verdict: Bitton heir

The Bhoys are yet to replace Nir Bitton since his departure in May, but Abildgaard has all the qualities to be the perfect heir for the Israeli icon in defensive midfield.

The 6 foot 4 gem could add a different dimension to Celtic’s starting XI with his height, having won 4.3 aerial duels per league game for Rubin last season, alongside making 2.1 interceptions per match, showing his desire to take control and win the ball back for his team (WhoScored).

Will Abildgaard be a good signing for Celtic?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Celtic have been desperate for a holding defender and Abildgaard may want a fresh start with his former team-mate Haksabanovic , so this is a prospective move which should definitely suit both parties.
