As reported by the Daily Record, all the signs are there for Celtic to snap up Filip Benkovic on a new deal next season for another loan year.
The classy defender has had a good season in the middle of defence and when he is on the ball he really does look the real McCoy.
A modern centre-half, then, and it would be good to see him sign an extension for next season, with it looking as though many are keen on such a proposition.
According to the report, Leicester are open to it, Neil Lennon is open to it and, crucially, the player is too, and if that isn’t a green light for us to get the deal sorted then I don’t know what is.
Our defence needs to be worked on for next season with changes expected and so if we still have Benkovic available for us next year that is going to solve one issue at least.
