Heard we are offering Jonathan Bamba a 4 year deal. Wont be announced until the 30th of June when his contract runs out.

Agree2 Disagree1

18 Jun 2018 21:13:59
He definitely looks like one of the players at training today ( someone posted a pic )

18 Jun 2018 21:36:25
He's a midfielder.

18 Jun 2018 21:49:25
Winger. Cracking player from what I’ve heard.

18 Jun 2018 23:19:52
Would be a teal coup getting him on a free! Great young player, fast and powerful like most french players he’ll fit right in with dembele ntcham and Edouard.

18 Jun 2018 23:25:21
Looks like a fantastic signing Forrest will be battling for his jersey if this boy plays to his potential 👍🏼.

18 Jun 2018 23:55:21
The Head of Celtic Multimedia said the boys in the picture are all U19's

Is Bamba not 22 or something?

Hope the story is true though.

19 Jun 2018 00:31:31
Wasn’t him. Gerry McCulloch confirmed the 3 lads were from USA, Brazil and Colombia and were under19 prospects. Any names Ed?

20 Jun 2018 16:38:14
But he had the same boots so we are getting nearer.

18 Jun 2018 16:46:06
Dortmund sniffing about big Moussa.

Agree8 Disagree3

18 Jun 2018 17:35:42
After this season, I think Moussa would do well to stay with us another year. Realise the club might want that to be dependent on signing an extension though. If him Ed and Griff are all here in September I will be a very happy Bhoy.

18 Jun 2018 17:43:38
U sure it wasn’t Morelos 🤔🤥.

18 Jun 2018 22:35:01
He was just starting to pick up last 6 games but think you also need to factor in we are in a strong position we are currently in to sell with 2 years left on contract atm. Keep another year and we are in same situation as Armstrong were he goes cut price as he can sign free contract in January. I'm not massively fussed with money but the more young stars we develop and sell for massive fee does give BR another example to use while in discussion with another top talent.

Perfect scenario would be to get him to sign up for another year or 2 then as you say sell next year. But tbf with Moussa, he enjoys it here. We know he'll be away at some point but he has waited for the right move and never made a fuss. Dortmund could potentially be the right move and if he does go does so respectfully and with my best wishes.

17 Jun 2018 16:48:11
Mcgregor off to Watford £10 mill.

Agree1 Disagree11

17 Jun 2018 16:53:02
Hahaha. Aye nae bother.

17 Jun 2018 16:55:11
I disliked this, why? Cause it’s pure bulls**t.

17 Jun 2018 16:57:31
No chance he's one of the gaffers favourite players.

17 Jun 2018 17:39:59
I spoke to him at the airport 2 weeks ago he is here for 10 in a row end of loving life at Celtic! 🙂🍀⚽️🏆🏆🏆.

17 Jun 2018 17:43:20
He is back boys. Talking more Bollocks.

17 Jun 2018 17:59:03
Yeah Stevie G is getting head hunted by Real Madrid.

18 Jun 2018 00:57:05
You sure it wasnt 11m? Lol.

19 Jun 2018 17:23:52
McGreegor isn’t going to Watford. He’s coming with me to join the MSL and Beckams revolution.
It’s in aw the papers.

16 Jun 2018 16:11:12
I have just read that the Edouard transfer fee was as follows
4.5 million + add ons for champions league group stage qualifing for four years + extra if capped for france + his agent and wages for four years
Total 9 million that would tie in with what BR said.

Agree0 Disagree1

16 Jun 2018 17:03:20
I can’t believe what you’ve just described is the biggest potential outlay ever by the club, which is what they said in the club statement. Sutton and Lennon were both £6m and must surely have been on at least £25k per week in wages.

17 Jun 2018 01:44:09
I'll concede that the deal has been done ;) . As far as the contractually binding bump up fees go? . Your a country mile ahead jono. I've not seen the paperwork. No one has. Unless James Forrest decides to write a novela of his life so far with a tasty insider tell all and spills the beans we will never know.

18 Jun 2018 11:38:58
What’s your source for this breakdown?

16 Jun 2018 15:51:45
Got a wee nod today that we are in talks with a centre half.

Agree14 Disagree1

16 Jun 2018 16:09:00
riddle me this, riddle me that.

16 Jun 2018 16:14:37
Any names or any more information jamesbhoy?

16 Jun 2018 16:38:32
His names Dedryck 😆.

16 Jun 2018 17:17:35
Hope he comes back from the WC stronger than ever Stan.

16 Jun 2018 17:51:51
Of course we are going to be in talks with a Centre calf. We need two so talking to one would be kinda normal.

17 Jun 2018 11:29:53
As usual i got it from coaching staff member.

17 Jun 2018 11:28:37
There's speculation MP and actual facts, i have been told by someone on the coaching staff who is a friend of my family, i have two family friends on the coaching staff.

17 Jun 2018 12:36:33
Good to see Jamesbhoy67 doesn't hide his light under a bushel. One thing I always thought a nod wasn't worth repeating, if the nod didn't say anything specific .
Are we going to live in a land of nods .

18 Jun 2018 00:58:56
I haven't even told you half of it Chris, nod nod, wink wink.

18 Jun 2018 07:37:07
Can you give us a name?

18 Jun 2018 16:37:24
Never got a name i was only told we are in talks with a centre half, and that the guys agent was being a pain in the arse with his demands.

15 Jun 2018 19:10:14
I'm hearing, Dembele is next in line for a new contract. 4 years apparently. I'm just passing on what I heard so please take it easy on me 😂. A lot of talk going around of this.

Agree5 Disagree2

15 Jun 2018 19:48:12
I'd be chuffed with that.

15 Jun 2018 20:05:15
Tell me about it! Also heard the whole Edouard deal is 9m including his contract? Not sure how true that is. ED007 can u elaborate on the Edouard fee etc?

{Ed007's Note - I'd be guessing mate but as soon as I can find out I'll post it.}

15 Jun 2018 22:28:36
If it is including the contract it is exactly what I have said the press have done for the insects with every player they have signed. The eddy deal? I'll leave alone till there is more info as there may be elaborate add-ons. Insect wise they reported 10m or so in transfer fees. The unaudited accounts clipped that back by a third. If the papers are trying that p*$# the club should be honest and tell the fans. BR rubbished the 7m, said it was less. Now its 9? No point giving anyone any ammo further down the line. No need. The blueprint for fuddery is across the river. Leave them and thier earwig sports desk puppets to it and set thier "record" straight.

16 Jun 2018 03:19:02
If we do sign Dembele to a new contract, Will we possible change to a 3-5-2 formation with the two French boys playing together.

16 Jun 2018 07:57:18
The press release from Celtic said we broke our record transfer fee.

{Ed001's Note - according to the papers filed with UEFA it was about 10m euros. Though that could be including add ons, it was not made clear.}

16 Jun 2018 10:08:05
BR never said it was less than 7 million, he said it wasn't 7,but he never said it was less or more, the sun reports it as it Could hit ten million, with add-ons including the sell on clause,

16 Jun 2018 10:24:14
I heard that the fee was originally 7million with a 25 or 30% sell on clause but big Pete offered the 9milion up front with no sell on clause. Don't know how much truth there is in that though.

17 Jun 2018 12:48:29
Jesus, it's hardly worth the Celtic's board time signing a worthwhile target . The negative nappy wetters on here are beside themselves belittling the transfer . Why any Celtic supporter should get worked up by the size of any particular fee is beyond me . Is it possible a Celtic fan could think he could catch the like of D D, PL, and
B R out and if they did, so what, Celtic will continue rather Eduords is £10m. or £4m.

15 Jun 2018 13:43:14
OE confirmed on 4 year deal great business by the club. Real statement of intent.

Agree4 Disagree1

15 Jun 2018 13:49:40
Great bit of business when you consider it didn't really cost us that much money, take of the VVD sell on and your probably talking about 3 million?

15 Jun 2018 14:19:58
Plus the 1 million for big Erik takes it down to about 2 million outlay.

15 Jun 2018 15:36:07
plus the million, or around there for our world cup players. Ha Ha, pretty much nothing. Lovely.

15 Jun 2018 17:02:33
Unfortunately I can’t see Peter Lawell thinking the same, although I really hope we get another couple of decent lads in . Like a previous poster said, maybe keep looking at young French lads as the last few have worked really well.

15 Jun 2018 17:05:21
I think with the business model we are using to buy young and develop to sell on for a profit we should be giving these players longer contracts to protect the investment and make as much from them as possible 2 years down the line OE could be our top striker banging the goals in and with only 2 years left on his contract weakens our position at the negotiating table.

{Ed007's Note - Jesus wept!}

15 Jun 2018 18:39:49
Four years is a long contract nowadays.

15 Jun 2018 19:40:02
C'mon big d have a word with yourself.

15 Jun 2018 22:46:48
That’s a good point big. D. Ed do you think there’s a chance Edouard will be sold in this window? 😂😂😂.

{Ed007's Note - Well his contract's a day shorter so I can see us cashing in if the right offer comes in. We don't want to risk losing him for nothing.}

16 Jun 2018 11:48:59
I heard big Eddie is running down his contract so he can leave on a free 😳.

16 Jun 2018 16:00:46
Yes very good I'm just trying to be realistic when a team from one of the bigger leagues comes calling and they most likely will an extra year or two would give Celtic a stronger hand Not trying to put a downer on him signing or anything it's just one thing that irks me when it comes to contracts when we all know these guys come in and sold on same as sell on clauses we should try for larger sell on clauses but anyway Welcome to Celtic OE.

15 Jun 2018 13:40:49
It's official Edouard has signed a four year deal.

Agree4 Disagree1

14 Jun 2018 22:52:44
Hi Ed, Not sure if the website is legit but according to Kickoff. com we are after Fabian Schär of Switzerland?

Agree1 Disagree1

14 Jun 2018 21:36:49
Jamie McCart away to Inverness on a two year deal.

Agree8 Disagree1

14 Jun 2018 22:32:27
That’s another 4/ 5 players brought up by Celtic in the youth, taught how to be professional and sent on there way to decent Scottish clubs. Sadly not all make it at our club.

15 Jun 2018 08:00:21
Good player. Quite surprised by this maybe the boy wanted to play first team. Good luck to him.

15 Jun 2018 10:45:00
We produce players mostly for the wee diddy teams. It’s been a feature for years. Very, very few of our own young players establish themselves. I have the feeling this situation will continue as I haven’t seen anybody who is equipped to be in the team we want to be next year.

We can kid ourselves on, as many do year on year about this young guy or that one, the facts remain that apart from KT, it’s none since McGreggor and Forrest. I would wager at the end of this season, the only young guy who has a chance of that was bought from St Mirren.

15 Jun 2018 13:20:23
Mikey Johnston will be a wonderful player for Celtic.

15 Jun 2018 15:45:05
I will believe it when I see it Stan. Too many false dawns. mickey looks too fragile to me. He has technical ability but his stature isn’t strong enough.

Jury is out for me.

16 Jun 2018 19:45:58
How much do we spend on our youth set-up? £2m per annum maybe?
Since Tommy Burns set it up properly - 18 years ago - we’ve had 12 player in the first team squad:
Marshall
Kennedy
McGeady
Maloney
McManus
O’Dea
Forrest
MacGregor
McGeough
Henderson
Tierney
Ralston

So that equates to an average of 1 player every 1.5 years - at an estimated average cost of £3m per player - not a bad return, especially when you think we got the guts of £10mil for McGeady and would get £20mil+ for Tierney, so we’d make our money back if we needed to.

Of course, we do produce a lot of players for other SPL sides, but that’s part of the selling point isn’t it? When trying to persuade a parent that Celtic is the best place for their talented kid, the club sell the “good grounding” leading to either breaking into the squad (like those above) or finding a good level club to take them on., and the potential of being a Jackson Irvine - didn’t quite make it with us, went to Ross County then the English Championship (for a decent wedge) and today is playing in the World Cup.
