Fabrizio Romano provided update on ex-Celtic man set to make Saudi move

Former Celtic Head of Recruitment Lee Congerton looks set to be the latest name lured to the Saudi League. The ex-Leicester City talent spotter is currently Director of Football with Serie A side Atalanta but it appears that he is set to move to Saudi Arabia.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Congerton will leave Atalanta by mutual consent before joining Al Ahli in the coming days.

Congerton had a patchy rate of success with signings while at Celtic. After three seasons at Celtic, the Welshman followed Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City and enjoyed more success while there.

It had been hoped that Congerton would’ve been able to bring Celtic into a new market, that elusive £5m-plus market, and propel Celtic into that next level in Europe. Alas, he wasn’t successful in dealing within the restraints of the club.
