Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva will make an approach for Celtic man Nir Bitton this summer.
The Lowdown: Previous Bitton exit link
It’s not the first time Bitton has been linked with a summer exit this year. Back in February, reports claimed that Maccabi Tel Aviv were weighing up a move for the versatile Hoops man at the end of the season.
The Latest: Celtic set to receive Bitton approach
It seems as if Hapoel Be’er Sheva have a summer rebuild of their own to deal with over the coming months and Bitton is thought to be on their transfer wishlist.
The Verdict: Celtic have a decision to make
Should Celtic receive a bid for Bitton, new CEO Dominic McKay and the rest of the Hoops hierarchy may have a big decision to make.
He still has over two years remaining on his Celtic deal, so we feel the club should be under no pressure to part ways with the player this summer.
It could be extremely important for a new director of football and manager to be through the door before the summer window opens, for them to then have a major say on Bitton’s future – buying or selling players before a new boss arrives feels like a recipe for disaster.
