ROCCO VATA has attracted the interest of West Ham and Crystal Palace, impressing with the Celtic B Team and making his senior debut in December.
The youngster has been extremely close to the senior side for some time now, training alongside the stars; he’s also been on training camps with the squad.
The English sides aren’t the only ones keen to snatch Rocco Vata up, with German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Shortly after this interest broke, CeltsAreHere told you that the 17-year-old was going nowhere as he eyed a regular place in the first team.

You’d imagine Crystal Palace and West Ham don’t have the ability to turn the youngster’s head.
Vata is about to enter the last year of his contract, expiring in May 2024. A renewal and an extension must be around the corner, with Celtic also keen to hold on to their breakthrough star.
There’s a lot of excitement surrounding Vata; he’s a promising talent who the Celtic coaches rate very highly.
