Ange Postecoglou provides positive transfer update

Ange Postecoglou has said that he will be active in the transfer market as he looks to continue strengthening before the window slams shut. Celtic will go straight into the Champions League group stages but the manager is mindful that for the amount of games his team will have, he needs to have quality and depth.

The Australian boss has already added Benjamin Siegrist, Aaron Mooy, Alexander Bernabei, Moritz Jens as well as making permanent deals for Daizen Maeda, Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers. However, speaking to Sky Sports, Ange said to expect more activity from The Scottish Champions.

“It’s fair to say that we’ll still be active in the window.

“Whether we get deals done is another thing because it’s got to be right ones.

“We expect there to be some comings and goings over the next couple of weeks while the window is open.

“Without putting any certainty around it, we’re still going to be alert to any situations that may come in that time.

“We’ve got to be stronger than last year and improve.

“The focus for us is the league and to retain our title we need to be stronger.That’s what our recruitment has been based on, filling those gaps that we had and overall making the squad better.

“We knew what we needed and part of our process was making Cameron and Jota permanent.

“It’s not just because they were good for us last year but because they’re a good investment.

“We had some pretty significant injuries last year purely because we were so stretched at times so we don’t want that happen again.”

You would expect that the manager and his scouting team are looking at exporting youngsters on loan while offloading high earners such as Christopher Jullien and Albian Ajeti, who appear to be out of his plans. The Swiss striker has been a noticeable absence throughout pre-season and you would imagine a move back to Switzerland would help the stalling hitman

Celtic kick off their season next Sunday at home to Jim Goodwin’s Aberdeen. The manager along with CEO Michael Nicholson appear determined to have the team in the best possible shape going into the new season as the retention of the Premiership remains priority along with making significant progress with Europe and winning domestic Cups.
