According to DH Sports, Belgian side Genk are set to sign Theo Bongonda and leave Celtic empty-handed in this particular transfer chase.
An exciting winger that hit double figures for goals last season, he could have been another signing that did well for us had he come in.
However, this report alleges that he is very close to being a Genk player now and it looks as though we’re going to have to look elsewhere in order to get him in.
Currently a player for Zulte Waregem in Belgium, he already knows the game in that country and so perhaps that is part of the reason he has moved to Genk – or is about to.
It’s a shame but, at the end of the day, there are other players at his level that could do a good job for us so it’s not the end of the world.
We just need to make sure we get these players in.
