Reports over the weekend suggest Celtic have contacted Manchester City about the possibility of keeping Patrick Roberts at Celtic Park for a further season after his initial loan period ends in May.

The midfielder who has proved his worth to Celtic in the year he’s been here already is enjoying life at Celtic Park and Brendan Rodgers would love to keep the Englishman for one more season.

There has been dialogue between both clubs in an attempt to thrash out a deal but it’s felt that some coaching staff at the Etihad would like to see Robert getting game time in the EPL or Championship next term.

Celtic and City have a strong connection when it comes to players, brining Jason Denayer, John Guidetti in on loan previously before Roberts and signing Dedryk Boyata at the start of last season.

It’s seen as a bit of a long shot but the player himself is very open to staying in the Hoops for another year to develop. However, the midfielders ultimate goal still remains first team football with City and England call up.

Would you like to see Celtic keep Patrick Roberts for another season?

  1. No…it’s time to start developing our own players…and in Brendan Rodgers we have the coach to do that. The only way forward with loanees is to have a buy option

  2. I like him but we have a load of our own young bhoys wh deserve to play and it’s there time use them now we are well in front and these bhoys need to get experience.

  3. I see where you’re coming from mate but another year of Paddy would be too good to pass up, although I think Bendan should play him more.

    We can still develop our own players as well; the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

  4. You can’t have enough good players young paddy on form gets bums off seats and gets the pulses racing . Staying at Celtic would be good for his development as well although point taken about our own young players
