Celtic: Stephen Welsh set to stay

Celtic: Stephen Welsh set to stay -Celtic

Celtic defender Stephen Welsh looks set to remain at Parkhead beyond the January transfer window, according to The Daily Record’s Scott Burns.

The Lowdown: Welsh rumours

The 21-year-old has made 19 appearances under Ange Postecoglou this season, however, he’s been linked with a move away this month.

Udinese recently enquired over taking Welsh on loan, with reports elsewhere claiming Celtic would be willing to sell for just £1.7m.

Welsh reportedly liked the idea of moving to Italy, but it appears as if a move will not materialise over the coming weeks.

The Latest: Burns’ update

Reliable reporter Burns shared a late-night update on Monday regarding midfield target Riley McGree and a possible departure for Welsh.

When it came to the defender, Burns claimed that Postecoglou and Celtic have made it clear to Udinese that Welsh won’t be leaving in January.

The Hoops boss wants Welsh to stay and battle it out for a starting spot and is in the mix alongside Cameron Carter-Vickers, Carl Starfelt and Christopher Jullien.

The Verdict: Postecoglou gets his way

Celtic have backed Postecoglou this month with multiple signings, and it seems as if the Aussie is going to get his way again when it comes to Welsh.

It’s refreshing to see the club are willing to listen to the gaffer, and keeping hold of the 21-year-old seems to be the right call.

Welsh, Carter-Vickers and Starfelt have all made plenty of appearances this season, whereas Jullien’s last game came back in 2020.

It will take time for the Frenchman to get back up to speed, so having three other senior options available around Jullien will give Postecoglou a welcome headache when it comes to selection.
