Celtic edge closer to a Frimpong windfall

Jeremie Frimpong is a man very much in demand with clubs throughout Europe chasing his signature. Arsenal are the latest club said to be interested in the Bayer Leverkusen star, with a bid of around £40 million being talked about.

Such a large fee will of course be great news for Celtic as the club are due a reported thirty percent cut of any sale, which was agreed after the Dutch youngsters £11 million move from Glasgow to Germany.

That could be worth about £6 million to the club, the price of a quality new signing. With a cool £25 million already banked by the club from the sale of Jota we are quids in and fully equipped for a spending spree and that’s not taking the guaranteed champions league windfall into account.

The other side of Glasgow are already seething that we received a record amount for Jota and the news that they will get no sell on fee for the transfer of Calvin Bassey who is close to moving from Ajax to Brighton.

The news that the champions are set to add further to their already swollen transfer kitty will upset all the right folk.

About Author

An ordinary everyday Celtic supporters hailing and still residing in Govan in the shadows of the enemy. I’m a season ticket holder. I Witnessed my first Celtic game in 1988 and have attended when I can ever since. Growing up in the 90s I witnessed Celtic at their lowest, and now appreciate the historic success we enjoy today. I enjoy writing about this wonderful football club and hopefully will continue to do so. I’ve always been a keen writer and initially started this a hobby. My ambition is to one day become as good an author as my fellow Celtic Star colleagues.


    • Not saying sums or % are right or wrong but it’s almost always on the profit after deducting initial fee paid. Claims that’s not the case in Benfica’s cut of Jota money but I find that hard to believe.
