Celtic: Yan Couto move now off

Celtic: Yan Couto move now off -Celtic

Celtic won’t be signing Manchester City right-back Yan Couto on loan this summer, according to Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas.

The Lowdown: Couto’s Parkhead visit

The Hoops have been interested in the Brazilian since the beginning of the summer and appeared to make their move for the 19-year-old last Thursday.

Couto was given VIP treatment at Parkhead for Celtic’s Europa League qualifier with Jablonec and was pleading with City to grant a temporary move to Scotland as a result.

However, it now seems as if any loan move is off the table.

The Latest: Thomas’ tweet

Thomas took to Twitter to provide an update of Celtic’s pursuit of a right-back on Monday morning.

He suggested that the push to loan Couto has ‘come to nothing’, with Celtic now eyeing up Legia Warsaw’s Josip Juranovic instead.

The Verdict: All eyes on Juranovic

As Thomas mentioned, it now appears as if all eyes are on Celtic’s pursuit of Juranovic, with Ange Postecoglou keen to secure a right-back before the window shuts.

The Hoops have since had an offer for Juranovic rejected, so it’ll be interesting to see if Dominic McKay manages to bring in a right-back for Postecoglou and if it is indeed the Croatia international.

It won’t be Couto, though, despite Celtic’s attempts to impress the South American last week.
