Celtic are rumoured to be lining up a move for Bristol City winger Niclas Eliasson with the transfer window soon to close according to a report in The Scottish Sun.
The article claims that the Hoops have sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old Swede and are monitoring his contract situation – his current deal runs out in the summer but it is believed that City have an option to extend it by another year – and may make their move this window if they are given any encouragement.
Ashton Gate gaffer, Lee Johnson, said of Eliasson’s contract situation:
“The way I would see it is he has 18 months on his contract but we would absolutely love it for him to sign a new contract. We value him hugely”.
“We’re discussing, he’s changed agents, but we’ve been sitting down and talking about it since the start of the summer but then agents change, other priorities come in between that. But the simple stance is we’d love him to stay longer”.
