Celtic transfer business continues as midfielder interest grows in January

Celtic fans have grown used to success, and walked away with the SPL title once again last year after dominating the Scottish top-flight once more.

Hoops fans here in The Transfer Tavern are always a lively bunch, and to this day it astounds our landlord how they can spend time out in the frosty beer garden at this time of the year! Top of the league once more and thriving under Brendan Rodgers, the club have a campaign of Europa League football to look forward to after finishing third in their tough Champions League group that consisted of PSG, Bayern Munich and Anderlecht.

Fans will expect new faces in the new year to cope with a gruelling run of fixtures, but The Scottish Sun has revealed a possible departure, with a host of clubs from across the European game said to be interested in a loan deal for midfielder Eboue Kouassi in the coming weeks. Werder Bremen, Genk and Amiens have all been touted as potential destinations for the 20-year-old, who joined last summer from Krasnodar in Russia.

Landlord’s Verdict

Kouassi is a promising young player with lots of potential, but has so far failed to establish himself as a regular in this Celtic side. A loan move would do the player the world of good, but Rodgers must make sure he accepts an offer from a club who will afford the player essential minutes in the second-half of the campaign.

Touted as a future star of the Ivory Coast national side, Kouassi could return to Celtic Park in the summer a renewed player full of confidence, and go on to become a star of the SPL in the coming seasons. Belgium could be an excellent destination for the player, with the Belgian First Division a wonderful place to learn for aspiring players.

Celtic fans, should Rodgers keep Kouassi this season and give him a chance? Let us know!
