TIMOTHY WEAH will this week arrive back in Glasgow and sign a loan deal from Paris Saint Germain for 6 months, as The Celtic Star EXCLUSIVELY told you on the morning of Christmas Eve.
Since then we’ve noticed that two red top tabloids have both claimed the story as their own exclusive days after it was on here. You will real that around Christmas Eve they were writing about Andy Carroll as a Celtic target.
On Saturday morning we told you that Callum McGregor would start at left back, Mikey Johnston would lead the line and play for an hour, before Odsonne Edouard would be introduced. We also revealed that the Brown Ntcham midfield axis would be restored. The less said about all of that the better!
“Timothy Weah is now close to being finalised as he has made it clear to Brendan that he wants to come to Celtic.
It’s just a matter of PSG giving it their blessing which will hopefully happen very quickly,” a Celtic source is quoted as saying in one of these red tops – who tried to push the Weah to Amiens as their take on the story just after Christmas.
Celtic are also being linked with an early January £2m bid for 21 year old Ivorian striker Vakoun Issouf Bayo, who currently plays for Slovakian side Dunajska Streda.
The same source is quoted as saying this on this possible target: “As for Bayo, there’s no question he is an exciting prospect. No bid has been made at this moment in time but he’s certainly someone we’re interested in.”
This could or could not be the case, however what’s interesting is that this paper suddenly has quotes from Celtic sources about transfer business.
Maybe Amiens will swoop to sign him?
