SKY SPORTS are reporting Christian Atsu wants to stay and fight for his place at Newcastle rather than head out on loan this January.
The winger has become a late target for Celtic according to Sky Sports as the club looks to address injury problems in the wide positions.
But it appears it won’t be Christian Atsu or anyone right now with the clock ticking down until midnight.

Celtic have brought in just two players this window, both 21, both with highs potential but right now, we have no signings that’s can come into the club and hit the ground running.
The Celtic team have made a winning start to their 2020 with four wins on the bounce and if they can keep that run going people will quickly forget this window.
We had the chance to really drive home our advantage but for whatever reason, chose not to pursue.
