Sky Sports man confirms Celtic ‘scouring the globe for talent’ after recent signings

As Celtic completed the two deals for Alsitair Johnston and Yuki Kobayashi ahead of the January transfer window opening in a few weeks time, the Hoops have been linked with a whole host of new names as the transfer season begins to draw nearer and nearer to us.

Recently Ange Postecoglou has been linked with interest in South Korea forward, Cho gue-sung, Al Ahly midfielder, Mohamed Magdy and also Dutch striker, Said Hamulic who plays for Stal Mielic in Poland. The Bhoys are extremely active, just as Ange said we would be moving forward, and now Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph has confirmed Celtic are scouring the earth for major talent to improve the squad.

Taking to social media today, he said:

“As per @mhendry92, Celtic have expressed an interest in Al-Ahly attacking midfielder Mohamed Magdy – more commonly known as Afsha. It’s understood the Hoops have held discussions with the Egypt international’s representatives, who are exploring his options.

“Celtic have been scouring the globe for talent, with scouts monitoring leagues in countries, including South Korea, Iran & UAE this year. It’s understood a number of targets from the Middle East, Asia & also North Africa have emerged, including South Korea forward Cho Gue-sung.”

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
