Celtic look set to miss out on Newcastle United Chancel Mbemba this summer with him set to join Portuguese side Porto.

According to Belgian outlet HLN, we’re going to fall short in this chase after the Chronicle had claimed that we were interested in the Frenchman not so long ago.

A defender that can play across the back-four, you can see why initially we were looking at him as he is clearly a versatile player with plenty to offer in terms of power and pace.

He’s young, too, so would have improved under Brendan Rodgers but,¬†at the same time, I’m not too worried about us missing out on him.

The Verdict

Mbemba is a decent player but I don’t think it’ll be massively detrimental to us that we’re not going to get him by the looks of things.

There’s plenty of other players out there that can do his role and, at the end of the day, if players don’t want to come what more can you do?
