BRENDAN RODGERS has told the media if he can secure another centre-back before the window closes he will be sending Filip Benkovic out on loan before the end of the month.
Benkovic was on loan at Celtic for the full of last season with the club and player parting ways in the summer. There’s always been hope Celtic could get the Croatian back and if Rodgers gets reinforcements in – it would pave the way for a loan move.
Neil Lennon and Celtic are looking at their options when it comes to centre-backs. It’s no doubt the club could do with an extra body in there for the second half of the season.
Benkovic has only played a few games for Leicester this season. Players ahead of him and injury stopping him from getting a look in.
Speaking to SunSport, Brendan Rodgers spoke about getting another defender in and sending Filip out:
“We’re hopeful that will be sooner rather than later, over the next few days if we can bring in a centre half then that will give him a chance to get out.
“He definitely needs the games and we’re hoping that will take place.”
Could Celtic be tempted late in the window or will they look elsewhere?
