If you are on social media a lot you would have seen the reports last night claiming Celtic are closing in on a few for Jordan Ibe. However, the source of the news leaves us to believe it’s just not the case at this moment in time.
It has been the Daily Express who have reported the move is ready to ahead. Not the usual ‘in the know’ accounts or even reputable journalists who do get the scoop on Celtic deals.
It comes off the back of a report last week that Celtic wanted the player in on loan. However, that was quickly quashed by Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe who said Ibe was going nowhere.
Since then, until the Daily Express posted their latest story, there has been absolutely nothing else about the winger coming to Celtic. Unless they know someone close to the player, the claim looks flimsy.
Neil Lennon and the bird now only have two weeks to do deals. Considering the amount of exits this summer – they should be ashamed of the lack of signings.
