‘Knew That Would Happen’ ‘What A Surprise’ Fans Disappointed At Celtic’s Failure To Land Ghanaian International

Celtic made an approach for Newcastle winger Christian Atsu on deadline day, but the Ghanaian international opted to stay at St James’ Park, according to reports in Scotland.

The Hoops were looking to sign a wide player before the close of the transfer window, following the departures of Scott Sinclair and Lewis Morgan, as well as the injury to Mikey Johnston.

However, Celtic’s attempt to sign Atsu failed, leaving many fans on Twitter frustrated by the lack of action from the club’s board:

The Scottish champions were also linked with Bristol City’s Niclas Eliasson, Kamil Grosicki and Bournemouth’s Jordon Ibe but no further business was done before the window shut.

It means manager Neil Lennon ended January with just two new signings, Patryk Klimala and Ismaila Soro, and supporters will now be hoping that the club doesn’t regret its lack of activity in the transfer market as they look for their ninth league title in a row.
