Celtic: Major Eddie Howe update emerges

Celtic: Major Eddie Howe update emerges - Celtic

It seems as if Eddie Howe’s proposed move to Celtic could be back on.

Reports had suggested that the 43-year-old was having second thoughts after verbally agreeing to become the new Hoops boss earlier this month.

However, the Scottish Daily Mail’s back page on Wednesday provided a positive development on the Englishman.

Is Howe the right man for the Celtic job?

Yes, absolutely

Yes, absolutely

No, could've done better

They claim that the available manager is ‘close to finalising an agreement to replace Neil Lennon’.

The report from Stephen McGowan added that Howe is now ‘piecing together’ his backroom team, although a move for Bournemouth technical director Richard Hughes ‘hangs in the balance’.

Transfer Tavern take

To us, this latest development should be seen as a major boost. The fact that Howe is ‘piecing together’ his backroom staff could be taken that a deal is progressing nicely.

Howe’s representative insisted that he wouldn’t return to management until the summer, but,  that doesn’t rule out agreeing on a move to Parkhead ahead of the 2021/22 season and starting plans for a rebuild at Parkhead, even if the official gig does not begin until later.

Should all parties involved agree on a summer switch, that may give Howe the time required to look at the Hoops squad ahead of what could be a busy transfer window, with plenty of work required to transform a squad set to lose its leader, Scott Brown, into one capable of challenging Rangers next season.
