Manchester City defender Jason Denayer looks set to leave the Etihad Stadium ahead of the new season and Celtic should be waiting in the wings to try and sign him in August.

Turkish outlet Sabah claimed earlier this week that Galatasaray are preparing themselves to make a move for the defender after the English Premier League transfer window closes on 9th August.

The report states that the Turkish giants are looking to offer him around £26,000-a-week to make the move, confident that they can secure his signing for a reduced fee when Man City are unable to leverage English interest in the player, with a loan move also a possibility.

Denayer is of course well known to Celtic supporters after a successful season on loan in the 2014/15 season, providing the kind of defensive stability that fans have craved over the last couple of seasons.

Now 23 years of age, he’s had two spells at Galatasaray since, sandwiching a less than stellar campaign at Sunderland. Last term he made 22 appearances in the Turkish top-flight and has clearly impressed enough for them to return for him this summer.

Alongside compatriot Dedryck Boyata or prospect Kristoffer Ajer, he could definitely provide the depth Celtic need at centre-back next season.

At the very least it’s something we should be pursuing given Denayer enjoyed his time in Glasgow and appears to be within financial reach of the club.
