Of course there are situations where no news is good news, but the ongoing situation with Celtic and Eddie Howe is starting to become a concern.
Hopefully there is much more to this, but it’s clear that talks have taken place so there has to be a fear that Celtic have decided he is the man that they want, but he’s still desperate to stay down south so he’s currently dragging this out to see if any other offers come his way.
That is the nightmare scenario for Celtic as the last thing we need to see is a panic appointment who will need to be replaced in a couple of years, while the latest reports about Howe suggest there is yet more interest from Premier League clubs.
This time it’s Brighton who are reportedly considering Howe as an option according to Football Insider, but it’s also worth remembering that the current boss Graham Potter has a huge contract with the Seagulls that keeps him there until 2025.
The problem for Potter is that a lot of money has been spent on that squad and relegation is still a genuine possibility, so it’s said that they are considering parting ways even if he manages to keep them up.
It’s a worrying one from a Celtic point of view because even if this story is wide of the mark then there’s still the problem that an agreement hasn’t been reached and someone feels the need to keep touting him with jobs down south, so hopefully something is sorted soon – one way or the other.
