There were media reports surfacing over the past few weeks that Celtic could take a punt on Jack Rodwell after Sunderland offered to rip up the midfielder’s deal.
The 26-year-old who never really lived up to the promise of his early career is currently on a 70k per week deal at Wearside and they’re keen to get him off the books.
However, any links with Celtic have been purely speculation driven, Celtic are not in the market for a player like Rodwell, nor would they entertain even half the wage he’s currently on.
But to put speculation somewhat to bed, it has been revealed that Jack is on trial with Dutch side Vitesse as the player seeks a new start.
Jack Rodwell has gone on trial at Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem. The midfielder, who earns £70,000 per week at Sunderland, has no future on Wearside.
