CELTIC have been linked with a move for young Newcastle goalkeeper after it was revealed the player is growing very frustrated at his current club.
The under 20 World Cup winner has a contract until 2020 and has been loaned out to Kilmarnock and Aberdeen so far in his career.
Reports say the player has become very frustrated being Newcastle’s third choice goalkeeper and asked to go back out on loan in the summer.
However, Newcastle declined the loan move because they wanted the player to pen a new deal before heading out. Given his current position in the pecking order, Freddie has been reluctant to sign any new deal with the club.
Speaking about a January move Freddie said.
“I want to get the best out of a bad situation,” Woodman said. “January is around the corner and I have to be prepared for it when it comes.
“I’ve always said I enjoy playing football so whatever level it is, I am going to enjoy it.”
There is no way if Celtic made a move for Freddie he would be number one choice and would most likely be third or fourth.
The rumours came from TalkSport and maybe this his agents trying to drum up business for the goalkeeper.
Craig Gordon is getting on a bit and Bain is there also at the minute ready to step in. Conor Hazard is also an option so it would be jumping from one frustrating situation to another.
