Celtic: Schalke now interested in signing Moritz Jenz

Celtic: Schalke now interested in signing Moritz Jenz - Celtic News

Celtic defender Moritz Jenz could leave the club before the end of the January transfer window, as Schalke have now made their interest known.

The Lowdown: Jenz set to leave

It was recently reported by Sky Sports reporter Anthony Joseph that Jenz could leave Parkhead this month, with the centre-back, who is on loan from FC Lorient, falling down the pecking order considerably.

The German has not featured in the last seven Scottish Premiership matches, not even making the squad for two of them, and it appears as though his time in Glasgow is now coming to an end.

The Latest: Schalke interested

According to Sky Sports, Schalke are interested in signing the defender, who is due to be recalled by his parent club in the coming days.

It is detailed that current Celtic’s loan agreement does include an option-to-buy, but they will not be taking this up, especially considering they have also added Yuki Kobayashi to the squad during this window.

Celtic fans, do you remember who Ange's first Hoops signing was?

The Verdict: Right decision

The 23-year-old is by no means a bad player, and he showed some very promising signs earlier on in the season, with journalist Josh Bunting hailing his abilities as ‘stunning’ after he netted two goals in two games.

However, the 6 foot 3 colossus has not been able to dislodge the likes of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt often enough in the starting XI, and the arrival of Kobayashi means that his game time would be even more limited if he were to stay.

Celtic journalist Owen Brown has suggested that he would not be in the top four centre-back choices next season due to Ange Postecoglou’s desire for a left-footed centre-back, which he now has at his disposal in Kobayashi.

As such, it is the best move for all parties if the loan agreement is brought to an end, and Jenz is allowed to join Schalke.
