Celtic: Sky Sports journalist clears up future of Shane Duffy at Parkhead

Celtic: Sky Sports journalist clears up future of Shane Duffy at Parkhead - Celtic Transfer Rumours

Celtic defender Shane Duffy will not leave the club early and will stay at Parkhead until his loan spell ends, according to Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph.

Duffy here to stay

The 29-year-old made the move up north from Premier League side Brighton in the summer and has received heavy criticism from the fans over some of his performances.

It got so intense that the Republic of Ireland international deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts, but he was backed by manager Neil Lennon, who condemned the abuse he had been receiving.

Despite all of this, Joseph reported on Thursday that Duffy will be staying at Celtic until the end of the 2020/21 campaign, despite suggestions that he could leave the club.

He added that the £8.55m-rated centre-back attracted interest from English Championship club Nottingham Forest – but they did not make an official move and are not looking to sign a defender this month.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

Duffy has had a tough time at Celtic because the expectations at the club are sky-high considering what they have achieved in the last nine years.

Despite this, Duffy has averaged the second-highest match rating for a centre-back at the club with 7.30, just behind Christopher Jullien (Whoscored).

Perhaps if he can regain some form, fitness and confidence the Irishman can become a valuable asset in the second half of the season for Lennon.

In other news, Celtic chief could be sacked as huge Parkhead changes on the horizon.
