Former Celtic winger Patrick Roberts is still a much-wanted man this summer despite failing to move clubs before the end of the English transfer window.

The Manchester City man was a deadline day target for Huddersfield Town last week, but a move to join up with David Wagner’s side failed to materialise.

If Celtic hoped that may open the door for them to swoop him and bring him to Scotland again, they thought wrong, with four European top-flight clubs interested in signing him this August.

That’s according to The Sun, who say that Bordeaux, Rennes, St Etienne and Girona all interested in his services, all teams that can offer football at a higher level than the Scottish Premiership.

Still just 21 years of age, £6.75m-rated Roberts has little chance of making a Man City breakthrough, but still has the potential to play at a high level, perhaps ruling Celtic out of the running.

He scored 18 goals and created 26 assists in 78 appearances for the Hoops and a return would likely go down very well with supporters, but the chances of him arriving in Glasgow before the end of August appear to be slim.

Do you still want to sign Patrick Roberts this summer? Let us know in the comments…

  • Who is writing this rubbish about French clubs being able to offer a higher level of football than Celtic. That will be why there is so much competition for PSG. This wee guy played for Celtic for a couple of seasons and is loved by the fans. I think that would amount to much more than French “quality, ” There are probably more Frenchmen playing for Celtic than most French teams. Keep the heid.

    • John Craig” a higher level playing for a French team? Really?? You dont half write a load of bollocks and as clubs go Celtic are a far bigger club worldwide than your aforementioned french teams!!
