WE have known about Celtic’s interest in Charly Musonda for some time now, the link goes back to the summer when Brendan Rodgers made a play for the young midfielder.

Chelsea were coy about a deal and ultimately decided not to loan him out anywhere in August. However, the London club have since changed their mind and have been exploring different options for Charly to get him first team football.

Celtic reportedly asked to be kept in the loop from the start of this window about the player’s situation. The Belgian player even got some game time last week when he assisted in Chelsea’s fourth with an outstanding pass to Victor Moses.

With the window drawing to a close, we believe Brendan Rodgers has been using his contacts at Chelsea to make this deal happen and it’s believed Celtic’s unrelenting approach to try and bring Musonda in has turned many heads at Stamford Bridge.

The media is reporting today that Celtic are close to a deal, but a final decision is not expected until after Chelsea’s game against Newcastle this weekend.

The deal is believed to be an 18-month loan, much like Patrick Roberts first stint.

The 21-year-old can play in midfield and as a winger.


  1. Loans and prospects. Are there no players that Celtic could sign for the club. Mid-20s, ready for the first team. He is Chelsea’s 4th team so he will be good enough for Celtic? Roberts will never be a Celtic player so start the whole process again. Cheap, as opposed to signing a quality CB. Not often I agree with Craigan but he is right today. Hendry is no better than we have but is cheap and that is why we want to sign him. The stupid supporters will buy Musonda, despite the deficiencies in other areas because they have been told he is quality and he may be. But he will never be a Celtic player and does not even want to be in Scotland, with Celtic. He will be guaranteed a starting slot as it will be in his contract. What kind of club are Celtic becoming. Is Christie coming back? We loan out the prospects we have to take on other clubs prospects. What a farce.

  2. Frustrating but that’s how you try to improve your team and excite your supporters when you get 1.5million for winning your league and get fuck all from Sky Tv,The English should be very happy about the future as they will reap huge financial gain,I worry for Famous iconic clubs in Britain who through time will merge into one,Celtic is my team and hope this never happens,football is all about the agent and player power now.

  3. We need a Decent Defence,Zenit will punish Us,Of that be Certain.How do we expect to progress in Europe,Our defenders get found wanting in our Premier.Watch This Space………Bringing in a quality midfielder wont help our Defending.Always Next Year
