Late in the summer transfer window, Celtic were linked with an unlikely move for Dutch international Jeffrey Bruma, who had fallen out of favour at Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg.

German outlet Bild reported he was on his way to Glasgow, with the Hoops preparing a multi-million pound offer to sign him on a permanent basis.

Ultimately the move didn’t transpire, but it is he a player Celtic should be looking at before the of the winter window?

If there was a sticking block to making a move to the Scottish Premiership in the summer, that may be easier to solve now considering he is further on the fringes of the Wolfsburg first-team.

Despite being injury free he has not made a single appearance so far this season and looks likely to leave the club before the end of January.

Rated at £2.7m by Transfermarkt, he’s within our budget transfer fee wise and is a potential candidate to take over from the departing Dedrcyk Boyata.

The Belgian is all but certain to leave the Hoops over the next few months, with Filip Benkovic also set to return to his parent club Leicester City at the end of the season.

Bruma may not have the current form that would excite supporters but he has the experience and attributes to be a success at Celtic Park, especially if Brendan Rodgers can work his magic and bring confidence back to his game.

The player has 25 caps for the Netherlands and has played at UEFA Champions League level before with PSV, alongside spells at Hamburg and Chelsea.

Is there a better available centre-back out there?
