Celtic have struck a deal with Polish club Korona Kielce according to reports that will see the club get first option on any of their top players going forward.

The club is constantly looking at ways to improve their scouting system and unearth talent at a grassroots level and this gives them an opportunity to do so in Poland.

Korona are a mid-table top flight Polish side with ambitions to move up the ladder in their country

One of the club’s coaches, Rafal Kwiecien was in attendance at the Glasgow Derby last month before sitting down with the club about the new set up.

Kwiecien told SunSport: “There are two camps set up in the summer in Staszow and Zielonka. The best young footballers will get a trial with Celtic and train with them.

“We were well received by Celtic and met a number of their coaches when we were in Glasgow.

“Celtic have had many connections with Polish football over the years – players like Dariusz Dziekanowski, Dariusz Wdowczyk, Maciej Zurawski, Paweł Brozek, Lukasz Zaluska and Artur Boruc.

“Many of them were idols for the Celtic fans.”

A lot of Celtic fans will remember Maciej Zurawski who had a fantastic first season with the club under Gordon Strachan before eventually fading away.

Artur Boruc is still talked about to this day for his exploits as a goalkeeper as well as a wind-up merchant.
