Mo Diame: Celtic’s missing piece

Mo Diame: Celtic’s missing piece

Is yet another treble in-line again this season? You bet it is! Even with the kerfuffle of Neil Lennon become a temporary manager again, Celtic have a great chance of securing even more history. That’s just how big they are. Don’t you forget that, Brendan Rodgers. 

As you’ll know, the Hoops had actually failed to produce their best displays at times this season – especially at the beginning – but now eight points clear in the league and in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup, those players will be desperate to secure both of those trophies again.

Yet because of their failure to make significant progress in Europe, Celtic will need to spend again this summer to get the players they need, or will they?

Newcastle’s Mohamed Diame may be out of contract this summer – depending on a clause in terms of his game time – and that should be of interest the Hoops.

Diame, (who is valued at £4.5 million on Transfermarkt) may still end up staying at St James’ Park  next season, with reports suggesting that if he makes three more starts in their final games, it will trigger a one-year extension on his contract.

If Newcastle decide against going down that road though, Celtic should assert themselves first in the cue to sign the 31-year-old.

Despite it being a fact Diame is not getting any younger, the towering midfielder would still be a fantastic option, with plenty left in his tank. He is an engine-type of midfielder, someone that will cover every inch of grass in a game and that’s why Newcastle have used him 24 times this season.

Indeed, pretty much everything Olivier Ntcham was supposed to be…

Diame doesn’t often find himself on the scoresheet but he is a player that will break-up play, go on charging runs and set-up chances for his team-mates.

If that’s something Celtic want to have in their team next season, they don’t need to look further than the Senegalese international.

Celtic fans, do you think Mo Diame would be a good fit? If not, why not? Join the discussion by commenting below…
