Celtic’s chances of signing Oli Burke permanently look unlikely

There is plenty of uncertainty at Celtic at the moment, however, the club must not let that distract them from their chances of securing a famous Treble Treble and fans must feel with Neil Lennon at the helm, it is something that is achievable.

However, the future of Lennon is not the only thing that faces uncertainty at Celtic Park, with one of their main stars current long-term plans in doubt.

What’s the News?

According to a report by the Birmingham Mail, Oliver Burke’s chances of remaining at the Scottish Premiership side look to have taken a blow.

The Scotland international may be handed a chance at West Bromwich Albion as whoever comes into The Hawthorns will likely want to take a closer look at him and may decide to keep the 21-year-old if he impresses.

The Verdict:

It is no surprise that the Bhoys are keen to keep the £9million-rated attacker (Transfermarkt) beyond the summer, however, what has happened at West Brom will have had some effect on their chances of keeping hold of him.

He has become a key player for the Hoops under both Rodgers and Lennon and the club must look to do all they can to convince the Championship side into allowing him to leave permanently.

Burke appears to have hit the ground running at Celtic following his January arrival and has hit four goals in his six Scottish Premiership starts after a rather abysmal spell in the Midlands following a big-money move from Red Bull Leipzig.

However, if his return to form is anything to go by, then West Brom would be right to bring him back to the Baggies and take another look at how well he has progressed during his time in Scotland.

Celtic fans, what do you make of the news that it could be harder to keep Burke at the club beyond the summer? Join in with the discussion below by sharing your thoughts with us.
