Transfer Latest – Celtic linked with Leverkusen keeper Patrick Pentz

Celtic have been linked with Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper, Patrick Pentz. The shot-stopper is currently on loan at Danish outfit Brondby, who the Hoops have been watching lately as they track their young striker Mathias Kvistgaarden. The player has been linked with Brendan Rodgers men since last summer and is supposedly still one of the names in the pipeline for next season too.

However, his teammate who is on a temporary deal at the Danes from German outfit Leverkusen, is said to also be attracting admiring glances from the Bhoys as we look to solve our potential problem area come the summertime. With Joe Hart set to hang up his gloves after a long and illustrious career in the men’s game, it looks like we will have to get this one spot on.

Irishman Rodgers has even claimed that the goalkeeping department at the football club may be in need of a total overhaul, with Benjamin Siegrist’s future in the balance too. It’s clear that he is not fancied by Brendan Rodgers and that he will have to move on to get game time, falling behind both Joe Hart and Scott Bain at the Scottish Premiership Champions.

With Pentz though, news of Celtic’s interest in the player broke through Austrian outlet, Salzburger Nachrichten, who have claimed that both the Scottish club and Dutch giants PSV are watching the ‘keeper.

He was quizzed directly on the links recently and said: “I get asked this question in interviews every week (Daily Record). “My contract at Leverkusen runs until summer 2025, so I can’t decide entirely on my own what happens next. My full focus is currently on the title fight and I will give everything for the club until the end. I feel very comfortable in Copenhagen: the club, the city and the people just suit me perfectly.”

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.
