Incoming? If reports this morning are to be believed Celtic’s transfer plans for next season are well underway already, with the Hoops being linked by Scottish Sun to Hammarby left back Mohanad Jeahze.
The Iraqi international has already caught the attention of Polish side Lech Poznan, who had a bid for the player turned down last summer, but with Keahze only having a year left on his current contract there may well be more of an inclination for his Swedish employer to accept a bid in the summer transfer window.
Celtic of course do have left back options at the club already, but with Adam Montgomery very much one for the future, Liam Scales seemingly unable to force his way into regular contention, and Boli Bolingloi training on his own, and as such appearing to have no future at the club, a left back to provide competition and cover for Greg Taylor makes a lot of sense.
The middle east market is also one Ange Postecoglou admitted to knowing well and believed there were good players for excellent value available in that market – as such these links to Mohanad Jeahze may well have more merit than mere speculation.
If these links are to be believed it’s an indication once again that a level of preparedness is breaking out when it comes to advanced planning for the season ahead, not something you can say had been a regular occurrence until Ange Postecoglou arrived at Celtic, but yet another sign of the influence and meticulous planning the Celtic boss has brought to the club.
