Celtic prepare move to land excelling La Liga defender

Celtic v Kilmarnock - Scottish PremiershipThe Celtic fans playing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern are discussing reports linking the club with a move for a Serbian defender.

The Scottish Sun is reporting that Celtic manager Ronny Deila could be set to make a move for Aleksandar Pantic.

The 23-year-old currently plies his trade in Spain’s La Liga with Villarreal, but is currently half way through a season long loan with Eibar. The defenders contract with Villarreal is up in the summer, which would mean that unless the Spanish club offer him a new deal Celtic will be able to pick him up on a free transfer.

Delia was present at Eibar’s last fixture and was impressed with the performance of Pantic and is ready to make a move to secure the youngsters services to bring him to Parkhead.

The Celtic fans in The Transfer Tavern are delighted that the manager is looking at fresh defensive options and hope that a deal can be concluded to land Pantic- and our landlord believes this deal would be a bargain.
