‘Too Many Loans’ ‘Better Than Nothing’ – Celtic Fans Unconvinced By Move For Bundesliga Fullback

Celtic are close to completing a loan move for Borussia Dortmund fullback Jeremy Toljan, according to reports in Germany.

The Hoops have been looking for a new right-back throughout the January transfer window but have been left frustrated in their attempts.

The Scottish club have seemingly missed out on Omar Elabdellaoui to Southampton and were priced out of a move for Atalanta’s
Timothy Castagne.

It will be Celtic’s fourth loan signing this month, and fans are not convinced that signing Toljan is the best solution unless there is an option to buy in the summer:

Toljan was signed by Dortmund from Hoffenheim for £6m, having played 23 games for the Bundesliga club last season. However, under manager Lucien Favre this campaign, he has not made a single first-team appearance.

The former German Under 21 international has reportedly been told he can leave in search of first-team football and it appears his destination will be Celtic Park.
