Fabrizio Romano confirms Celtic goalkeeper target joins Saudi club

Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that reported Celtic goalkeeping target Koen Casteels has signed a deal to move to Saudi Arabia. The Belgian goalkeeper has completed a deal to join the newly promoted Saudi Pro League team.

Speaking on Twitter/X, Romano confirmed the news that means that there’s one less target to be linked with Celtic.

Earlier this month, The Daily Mail reported that Celtic were interested in bringing Casteels to Paradise.

After 274 appearances for Wolfsburg, Casteels sealed an emotional farewell last week. Although, given his status as a Belgian Internationalist and the lack of transfer fee, a number of clubs will be keeping tabs on the goalkeeper.

Celtic have been linked with Aro Muric from Burnley, Alex McCarthy from Southampton and Ugurcan Cakir from Trabzonspor. The theme appears to be that the club are targeting a goalkeeper with experience. Joe Hart bowed out after an emotional fortnight winning the League title and the Scottish Cup. Not only was the Englishman quality on the pitch but he was quality off of it, providing leadership and really buying into the club.
