BRENDAN RODGERS has provided an update and where he’s at with regards to bringing in Moses Odubajo on a permanent deal this summer.
The former Hull player has been out for the better part of two years with a horrible knee injury and the Celtic manager is wary of raising expectations of signing the full back but he admits the potential is there after talking with the player in Austria.
“He is coming back from a really awful injury. We are just taking the opportunity to have a chat to see where he is at and now we will take it from there. Moses if he is a fully fit player and up to speed then he is a big, big talent.
“I saw him [at Brentford] and he was an exceptional talent. He was a winger that has been turned into a full-back so his intent to get forward is there but he is also good defensively as well. That sort of player attracts us. We are looking to develop he squad.
“He has been out for two years, but we will see what happens over the next week. We got permission to speak but obviously there is a concern over the fitness.
“There is still a lot to go before that could happen, but it was just nice to talk him and see where he was at.”
Celtic kicked off their pre-season with a win over SK Vorwarts Steyr thanks to a goal from James Forrest.
Celtic have lost a lot of players this summer and have only made the permanent deal of Edouard so far.
