‘Transfer Specialist’ says Maeda will join Celtic in January

Another ‘transfer specialist’ has posted on social media that Daizen Maeda to Celtic is happening this January. Ekrem Konur is a journalist with an ear in the ether when it comes to football transfers from all over the world. Now he has added fuel to the fire that Daizen Maeda to Celtic is all but done ahead of the transfer window opening.

Maeda has been consistently linked with Ange Postecoglou and Celtic for months now. Now that the Japanese season is finished he could be ready to pen a deal in Glasgow with the Scottish giants. Ange previously worked with the player so it would make sense that he would want to bring him to the club under his new project.

His comrade Kyogo Furuhashi has settled in extremely well since his move from the J-League with Vissel Kobe. A reputed £4.5 million seems like a steal now that we know what Kyogo is capable of and the unlimited potential he has to reach.

Maeda got himself into the team of the year in Japan and also finished the season as top scorer. The player is a forward who is preferably played on the left-hand side of a front three, having played in Ange’s system previously at Yokohama F. Marinos for a couple of years.

Maeda is a player who went out on loan to improve his game before coming back to improve his game dramatically in the J-League. A Japanese international like Kyogo, Maeda is still young and has more potential to fulfil and hopefully this will be with Celtic come 1 January.

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.
