Chinese club makes bid for LG?

Agree2 Disagree2

06 Jan 2017 10:47:39
LG won't leave. Definitely not for China, he's got too many kids to too many women haha

06 Jan 2017 11:29:32
Could be an ideal move for LG stephbhoy-China has a one child policy but I think it's per wummin 🍀

06 Jan 2017 12:32:26
Mibi they heard us calling him Wan-Lee Griffiths 🍀

06 Jan 2017 13:21:41
theres no way the wee man would give up all that monday book money steph lol.

06 Jan 2017 16:58:50
Rumour has it he would moved to China to be closer to the other half of his kids.

05 Jan 2017 16:30:05
Reading that West ham have lodged 20m bid for dembele, any truth in this ed? I know Rodgers said he wouldn't sell but would it be taken out of his hands.

{Ed007's Note - West Ham have not bid for Dembele , it's simply made up nonsense that originated from an opinion piece in the WHU official site.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 23:06:36
we need a right back lustig been great but is easly exposed especialy in europe but what a change with br in charge.

05 Jan 2017 23:17:53
Lubo give gamboa a run of games.

06 Jan 2017 16:14:46
There has been no "official bid" from West Ham, according to Celtic but note the use of the word "official". West Ham inquired about Dembele, hence the recent press reporting. It's no secret that Dembele wants to leave Celtic for the Premier League, the issue is one of timing and cost.

Players decide transfers nowadays, certainly not the manager. You can expect Rodgers to say something on the lines of "Dembele isn't the finished article, needs more time at Celtic to develop" blah blah but in reality, if Dembele wants to leave, the club will sell.

Apparently, West Ham discussed a £20 million bid. £2 million now and £13 million over 5 years and the rest in the clauses. That's a pretty typical construct but Celtic want £30 million but again, with a similar structure.

I would expect Dembele to leave in the summer though. I think his agent would suggest that Dembele can find a bigger club than West Ham

{Ed007's Note - There is nothing even remotely true in that whole post - it's all bollocks and just stuff you've made up.}

06 Jan 2017 16:48:43
Did he not have offers from the EPL before he came to us? The lad has said himself he wants to stay here several years, win things, develop. We should at least give him the benefit of the doubt on that one.

06 Jan 2017 18:18:57
Chris Davies on stv news saying the moose is going nowhere.

06 Jan 2017 19:01:11
steph did you see the moose loose aboot the big hoose? baaaaaannnngggg lol.

06 Jan 2017 22:28:15
Ed007 thanks for an uneducated reply. Instead of whining, why not point out what you think is erroneous. Please don't start by saying transfers are not constructed the way I explain because you would just be plain wrong and you would look foolish.

Next: look at all the evidence. Someone had made an enquiry for Dembele and WHFC look like credible contenders.

Provide some thought behind your dismissive approach

{Ed007's Note - West Ham did not bid for Dembele, that's all I need to know and I didn't whine, I said you were talking bollocks.
'£2 million now and £13 million over 5 years and the rest in the clauses' - that's just garbage that you've made up to try and make it look like you know what you're talking about which you obviously don't. If I can help it I won't have the posters on here taken in by dubious stories from the press or other posters.}

05 Jan 2017 14:11:30
Ed, do you know if there's anything Henri Lansbury rumours? Almost reminds me of the Ledley deal when we got him on a pre-contract when there was plenty of English interest!

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything about any official interest in Lansbury and he'll probably end up at Aston Villa. Why would we sign a player that's not any better than players we're trying to get rid of?}

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 21:03:56
Cheers Ed, not seen any of the boy apart from twitter hype if I'm honest!

{Ed007's Note - From what I've seen of him I'd have McGregor in my team over him any day.}

05 Jan 2017 13:33:43
Filip benkovic name floatn round. defender from zagreb im sure it said. ?



Agree2 Disagree0

05 Jan 2017 14:49:55
Sure he just signed a new deal until 2022?
Think this came from one of those "Ex-Agents" on Twitter!

Wouldnt be surprised if this was bull****.

05 Jan 2017 14:54:40
Sorry he's contracted until 2020 my bad.

05 Jan 2017 19:24:27
Yeah. seen it oan twatter mate! . al leave the hot topics for hoops88 to keep is oan our toes! 😂



05 Jan 2017 23:10:53
You're no wrong there bud! He's the best at it after all 😂.

05 Jan 2017 13:18:28
Possible exit - boyata to anderlecht.

Agree4 Disagree1

05 Jan 2017 19:20:20
Only if there is a god.

06 Jan 2017 02:27:51
AG, There is!

06 Jan 2017 15:10:24
aye he's back in slovakia now working for the slovakian fa now lol.

07 Jan 2017 11:10:44
Naw there isn't, but I still hope he goes. He's a bad Dundee player at best.

04 Jan 2017 22:51:08
FC Copenhagen left back has been scouted - Nicolai Boilesen.

Agree0 Disagree6

05 Jan 2017 08:34:37
Dont see this just left ajax after not playing for over a year did not play much before that due to injury. has just signed 4 year deal at copenhagen not even played a game yet.

05 Jan 2017 12:51:29
Seen their game at home vs leicester and they had a young guy playing at left back and he was outstanding (I thought) . wasn't boils sen can't remember his na me and I just ckecked it two mins ago first name was Ludwig.

05 Jan 2017 12:55:22
Augustinson. . he stood out that night haven't seen anymore of him though.

04 Jan 2017 18:01:12
The name "Jean-Kevin Duverne" is being thrown around. Heard we're linked with signing him. No idea if it's true or not, just what I've heard.

{Ed007's Note - I was speaking to someone earlier about Duverne and was told that Lens have said Celtic, Red Star, Lille, Newcastle, Rennes, Lyon, Sunderland and Spurs have looked at him this season but he has only got in the first team this season and it would be seen as an enormous jump to move elsewhere and play.}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jan 2017 18:42:28
Read about this kid a while ago with Newcastle linked. Compared to Varane - not bad. The story at the time was Lens weren't interested in selling though. Might not be the case now.

04 Jan 2017 18:51:41
Maybe he's an option for replacement of boyata/ efe? But I'd imagine we'd be looking at players that can make an instant impact even with sviatchenko and simunovic holding there position!

05 Jan 2017 09:12:38
If we shipped Boyata and Ambrose this window, brought in Duverne, added to Erik, Jozo and Kolo that should be enough. Come the summer, we might decide to let Kolo go, which would free up some wages for a more established CB. By which time though, Duverne and Simunovic may have come on a fair bit.

I think if we see another player this window it will be an attacker. Get them up and running for the CL qualifiers. By then Roberts could well be away and Forrest, when you look at his goals return compared to those around him, stands out as a position that needs improving.

05 Jan 2017 17:32:35
A don't want to see big kolo leave, he's a good role model for youngsters, but apart from that he's good cover.

04 Jan 2017 12:28:43
Reading on a few sites that Henri Lansbury is a possible target.

Agree2 Disagree1

04 Jan 2017 14:04:51
Saw that. Decent player by all accounts.

04 Jan 2017 14:05:38
Villa in for him tho so wages may be an issue.

04 Jan 2017 14:45:03
We have no chance lads, been over on Sevco pages The Rangers have him targeted.

04 Jan 2017 14:44:43
Any truth in the landsbury rumour? Decent player and done well the last couple of season!

04 Jan 2017 15:39:09
excellent kwaj lol.

04 Jan 2017 17:29:29
Kwaj thought angela landsbury is more in their age range for signing.

04 Jan 2017 22:27:21
Aw naw. How can we compete with a team who think they're great?

Ah well.

04 Jan 2017 11:42:08
Eboue had arrived in Glasgow to finalise move.

Agree3 Disagree0

04 Jan 2017 12:07:22
Does anybody know if the boy can speak English?

04 Jan 2017 16:16:46
most africans can, we can't here in deepest darkest clydebank but.

03 Jan 2017 18:07:27
New signing expected soon

Celtic are set to sign Krasnodar teenage starlet kouassi Eboue with the clubs agreeing a 2.5 million bid.

Agree4 Disagree1

03 Jan 2017 18:13:30
Any good?

03 Jan 2017 18:48:55
The Beeb saying a £3m fee agreed. A bit left field.

03 Jan 2017 19:08:33
Nah centre mid jimtim 😉.

03 Jan 2017 19:16:49
Jules Christ, that was awful, Wee pmsl.

03 Jan 2017 18:57:17
Any truth in this Ed? Seems too random to be made up.

{Ed007's Note - It seems to be true but we'll need to apply for a work permit under the 'exceptional talent' clauses (like Wanyama) as he doesn't meet the requirements. I don't see any problems with it though but there's always that possibility.}

03 Jan 2017 19:20:15
Never heard of him. That says nothing about him but outside celtic ma knowledge is limited, infact it's limited even inside celtic haha.

03 Jan 2017 20:28:21
Good stuff. Glad to see we are still after players outwith the EPL!

04 Jan 2017 00:15:45
I'm surprised a Russian team is willing to sell their rising star for £2.5/ 3 million. Although having seen the way some of the fans behave over there, I'd imagine he'd prefer to ply his trade in Glasgow.

04 Jan 2017 04:31:39
Wanyama mark II, good to see signing good young players. Reckon Toure has provided any input on this youngster?

04 Jan 2017 11:18:24
He must be some prospect if we are spending 3m on a 19yr old imo. Although looking at him he's a hellova lot skinnier than big vic was so can't really compare him.

04 Jan 2017 13:48:34
That was my thinking Shug. BR isn't afraid to spend money though! Can't comment on the player but I'd expect him to be getting in on the first team action sooner rather than later for that price. With the lead we have though I can't see why we shouldn't be able to bed him in.

04 Jan 2017 11:33:26
Sky saying the boy is in Glasgow for talks.

04 Jan 2017 16:18:02
he is a digger, likes a tackle.

03 Jan 2017 23:46:42
Ed, this appears to be probable, and a fair amount of money, anywhere outside the financial utopia of England. Two questions, with your knowledge and contacts, is this guy a prospect? and do you think there could be more signings with Europe next year in mind?
I ask because, if this is true, this will be the first time I can remember that we are trying to strengthen from a position of strength, unnecessarily.
This would reinforce the premise that as a club, we are now serious about competing at a higher level than previously thought acceptable.

{Ed007's Note - I'd never heard of Eboue till yesterday but when you read up on him - even without listening to the Celtic experts on him who suddenly appeared - he seems to be a highly rated prospect. Rodgers has said that any signing this window will be signed with the CL qualifiers in mind and even though it's difficult to get deals done in January I don't think Eboue will be the last arrival this month.}
