Celtic could still cash-in on loanee this summer as injury return could lead to permanent deal

It was always going to be impossible for anyone to replace Kieran Tierney, but Boli Bolingoli has largely been a disaster since his arrival.

He did gain cult status among a few fans and he was sometimes entertaining to watch, but he started to fall out of favour and his trip to Spain during lockdown meant that he had to go.

It appeared that he landed on his feet with a move to Champions League side Basaksehir, but they are now facing relegation and he’s been forced to miss most of the season after picking up a nasty knee injury.

A report from The Sun has confirmed that he’s now on the mend and he’s expected to return to the team at this crucial stage in the season.

There is still some interest in this from Celtic as it’s confirmed that his loan deal has an option to buy included in there, but it’s unlikely to be triggered if they end up going down.

It’s hard to see him having another chance at Celtic Park so getting some kind of fee for him would be a positive going into the summer, and it’s more likely if he plays a key role in keeping them up.
