Celtic: Hoops closing in on Harkin - Celtic

Celtic are closing in on landing Manchester City man Fergal Harkin as their new director of football.

That’s according to a report from Football Insider, who have been informed by a Hoops source that the club are ‘committed’ to land the Irishman in the newly created role.

Celtic impressed with Harkin

A deal was thought to be 90% done last month, and it seems that following recent extensive talks, a move to Glasgow is in touching distance.

His 11-year stint at the Etihad has reportedly impressed Celtic, who made the 44-year-old their top target last month, with Football Insider now claiming the deal is even further along than their previous 90% claim.

Is Howe the right man for the Celtic job?

Yes, absolutely

It seems as if Harkin will now have a major say as to who becomes Neil Lennon’s successor at Parkhead.

However, what this means in the club’s pursuit of former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe remains to be seen.

Howe reportedly wanted Cherries chief Richard Hughes with him in Glasgow, but with Harkin now closing in on the position, that could impact their chances of the Englishman taking over.

Other names such as former Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre have been linked with the vacant role, and it looks as if one of Harkin’s first jobs as the new DoF will be to help the club land a first-team boss.
