Strange transfer news for Celtic fans with World Cup winner reportedly keen on swoop

The Celtic fans here in the Transfer Tavern are delighted to have seen their club make a move already in the market and hope Brendan Rodgers continues to improve his ranks, heading into the business end of the Europa League. 

Indeed, with Marvin Compper now on board, the Bhoys in our bar are dancing in delight, praying for a raft of new arrivals. However, while Celtic Park could be a busy place in terms of transfer this January, it may not only be in terms of potential incomings.

According to the Scottish Sun, Hoops starlet Liam Henderson could leave Glasgow next month and head to Italian Serie B side Bari in an effort to resurrect his career. Despite impressing on loan at Hibs two seasons ago, the former Scotland U21 international has struggled for game time under Rodgers.

The 21-year-old is understood to be of interest to Bari boss Fabio Grosso – the man who famously scored the goal that won the Azzurri the 2006 World Cup – in what would certainly be an interesting move for all involved.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Henderson has previously spent time plying his trade in Europe during a loan stint with Rosenborg so another move abroad could give him experience not many British midfielders his age have. It’s a risky move, though one that could certainly prove beneficial.
