The Breakdown

Opinion: Clever bargain addition would be Celtic’s smartest in years

With arch rivals, Rangers so busy in the Transfer Tavern, Celtic fans will be happy to see the club linked with another potential signing following Odsonne Edouard’s arrival on a permanent deal. 

Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard has been quick to add to his squad in order to try and compete with Brendan Rodgers’ two-time treble-winning side. However, Celtic fans needn’t worry as the Daily Record is reporting that former Hull City fullback, Moses Odubajo is being lined up to join The Hoops on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old fullback endured a torrid time while he was at Hull City. Following a knee injury, the fullback hasn’t played since the 2016 Championship play-off final and missed Hull’s entire Premier League campaign and their return back to the Championship.

The former England under-20 international is set to become a free agent once his deal expires at the end of the season and was pictured joining the Celtic squad for their pre-season tour of Austria.

Odubajo can operate as either a right-back or a right-sided midfielder. Hull paid £3.5 million to sign him three ago and had started well before his injury problems occurred. Such had been his impressive performances, that the former Brentford man had been scouted by Newcastle United.

Right-back has been a problematic position for Celtic and although, with Mikael Lustig and Cristian Gamboa both being at the World Cup, Odubajo could add some crucial depth to Rodgers as he looks to continue Celtic’s title-winning ways.

So Celtic, what do you think of the potential new signing?
