As quoted by Football Scotland, Jose Cifuentes has discussed the speculation around him and has suggested that there are talks ongoing with Celtic over a potential move.
The Bhoys have had a pretty quiet summer transfer window so far and it’s at this point in pre-season where I’d like to have thought we’d have signed more players than we have.
Anyway, we’ve not got many in up until now and it’s up to Neil Lennon and the recruitment team to try and get things sorted.
Cifuentes would appear to be a target, then, and it does seem as though there are discussions being had – though it remains to be seen exactly how they are going on.
As quoted by Football Scotland, the South American had this to say:
“I think that [as you say] it’s a rumour, and as for any contact [with Celtic] my agent is handling that. I understand that there is interest but nothing concrete.”
He could be potentially on his way in then, but it seems to largely depend on what his agent is demanding.
We’ll just have to sit tight here.
