Jagiellonia Bialystok vice-president Agnieszka Syczewska has said that the Polish club have not received any bids for striker Patryk Klimala, and Celtic have not made contact about the 21-year-old.
Reports in the Scottish media yesterday suggested that the forward was on the Hoops’ list of transfer targets for the January transfer window. Asked about the speculation, Syczewska said:
“Celtic have not contacted us about a transfer for Patryk. Until an official offer is received these kinds of stories can be put between the comic strips. We don’t have any offers so far, so at the moment there is no indication that Patryk will leave us in the winter.”
Syczewska was, though, mindful of the fact that things could change if a formal approach was made for Klimala between now and the end of the month:
“On the other hand, one has to be aware that the transfer window in Europe has just opened and it is difficult to predict what will happen in the future.”
It is believed that the Polish Under 21 international could cost as much as £4m. Due to his lack of experience, it may well put off Celtic from making a bid.
The Scottish champions are said to be considering other targets as well, although they could miss out on Slovan Bratislava’s Andraz Sporar with it being reported that Bristol City have made a concrete offer for the Slovenian international.
