Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou had added former Hoops defender Erik Sviatchenko to a list of possible summer signings, according to the Daily Record.
The Lowdown: Sviatchenko’s continued success
The 29-year-old is still with Danish side FC Midtjylland after leaving Parkhead back in 2018 in a deal worth £1m.
The centre-back is Midtjylland’s captain, and after winning six major honours with the Hoops, has gone on to more success with his current employers. He’s lifted three more trophies in his second spell with Midtjylland, taking his career honour tally to 10.
The Latest: Sviatchenko links
The Daily Record report that Sviatchenko is in line for a dramatic return to Glasgow, adding the centre-back has unfinished business at Celtic Park.
He’s on Postecoglou’s list of Celtic targets, with a Parkhead rebuild set to take shape under the Australian.
The Verdict: A no brainer?
With Kristoffer Ajer confirming he wants to leave Celtic earlier this month, Postecoglou will more than likely be in search of multiple centre-back additions over the coming months.
Bringing in someone like Sviatchenko, who knows the club extremely well and what it takes to be successful, could be an excellent piece of business.
He’s made 63 appearances for Celtic, has turned out on 39 occasions in the Champions League and Europa League, and at 29, you’d expect Sviatchenko will still have plenty to offer over the coming years, should he seal a return to Scotland.
