Celtic: Player’s agent rips into Hoops transfer rumour

Celtic: Player’s agent rips into Hoops transfer rumour -Celtic News

SM Caen star Alexandre Mendy’s agent, Warsame Egal, has hit back at recent transfer rumours linking his player with a move to Celtic, claiming they have had no contact from the Hoops.

The Lowdown: Rumoured interest

The 28-year-old remains under contract with the Ligue 2 outfit until 2024, but approximately a week ago, a report from French newspaper L’Equipe emerged which claimed that the Hoops had ‘great interest’ in signing the forward.

The outlet even went on to state that the Glasgow outfit have ‘already made a proposal’ of €3m (£2.5m) in a bid to attract him into a move to Parkhead.

However, all of these claims have now been strongly denied by the player’s representative, who clearly wanted to set the record straight regarding the reports around Mendy.

The Latest: No contact made

Following the release of L’Equipe’s article, Egal was again approached by the website for a response to Celtic’s supposed interest. He told Le10 Sport (via Sport Witness):

“We don’t know where it comes from… If a club wants a player, we still start by asking the player if he wants to come, right? I haven’t been contacted by anyone, so I think it’s obviously not true.”

From which academies did these Celtic players graduate? Let's get started... Joe Hart is a product of which club?

The Verdict: End of the road for Ajeti?

The £1.8m-rated ace has been in impressive form for Caen this season, having scored 16 goals and registered one assist in 31 league outings for Stephane Moulin’s side, as per Transfermarkt, and so whether he’s been in contact with the Scottish club’s hierarchy or not, it would be no surprise to see the club interested in securing his services come the summer.

Should the Celts make any kind of move for a striker though, this would surely signal the end of Albian Ajeti’s time at the club, who has been out of action since the end of last year after picking up a hamstring injury.

The Swiss international has massively dropped down the pecking order under Ange Postecoglou, and so if Michael Nicholson were to sell Ajeti, that fee could be spent on finding a suitable replacement ahead of the start of next season.

In other news… a Sky Sports pundit has recently heaped praise on the Hoops boss.
