Transfer Latest – Joey Dawson set to join Celtic trio in Austria

Joey Dawson is about to become the fourth Celtic player to head out to Austria on-loan this summer transfer window. It is being reported that the redheaded striker is now set to join up with his teammates at Admira Wacker. Celtic have a working relationship with the Austrian side as of lately, which could prove fruitful for our youth players’ development.

This comes after Ben McPherson, 19, Matthew Anderson, 19, and young goalkeeper, Tobi Oluwayemi, 20, get all set to head out to the Austrian second division side. It’s a move that will give all three the vital first-team exposure and minutes on the pitch against seasoned pros that is desperately required to take that leap forward into playing for the Hoops.

According to Austrian journalist, Stephen Blumenschein, 20-year-old Dawson is set to make it a quartet of young, talented up-and-comers from the Bhoys B-side to head for Wacker for the new campaign. Dawson of course played for Celtic in substitutes appearances and was most notably given a game a few years ago against St Johnstone when we had an injury crisis during Ange Postecoglou’s first year as Celtic manager. The youngster equipped himself well that Boxing Day at McDairmid Park, and will no doubt feel he wants another crack at that first-team soon.

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.
