Celtic have been linked with a move for Connor Roberts over the past week but try telling that to Swansea boss Graham Potter.

It’s not just Celtic but also some Premier League clubs who have been keeping an eye on the Welsh right back who is coming to the end of his Swansea deal at the end of the season.

However, Potter is not worried about the interest in his 23-year-old star and has given Swansea fans an update on the progress of Roberts new deal.

Speaking to Wales Online over the international break, Potter believes a deal is close to keep Connor at the Liberty Stadium beyond the summer.

“As far as I know it is going well and not too far away.” Potter said.

“It’s crossing the Ts and dotting the Is. You don’t want to discuss too much publicly as some happen quickly and others not as they have to know it is right for them and their families.

“I’m not worried, it’s part of the process and Connor is happy here. He’s enjoying his football here and sees his future here. It’s about making sure everything is right for both parties.”

It would appear Celtic may have to look elsewhere for a full time right back.

It wasn’t so long ago the club had their very own Welsh right back in Adam Matthews – the player came in under Neil Lennon and did well at Celtic Park before eventually moving on.

It’s clear Lustig needs help in the problem position and if Rodgers doesn’t see Ralston as the man to replace the Swede – the scouting system must strive to find someone.


  1. The one thing i do know now is that if Celtic want a player they go and get him,you can hear the stories going around in the media but bottom line is when Celtic come calling the player signs a deal most of the time,look we need nine dead wood players moved out as soon as,we need two CHs one seasoned pro and a work in progress for BR one seasoned pro CF and two midfielders one work in progress for BR and a seasoned pro for back up…
