Celtic 'likely' to land £2m windfall after Nixon update - Campbell

Celtic will ‘likely’ land another £2million from the sale of Ryan Christie to Bournemouth, according to Kevin Campbell.

The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, tipped the extra windfall to fund two new arrivals at Parkhead in 2022. 

Celtic sold Christie to Bournemouth for an initial £2.5million fee in August.

According to The Sun‘s Alan Nixon (print edition, p. 61 September 3rd), the Hoops will receive an additional £2m if Christie reaches the Premier League with the Cherries.

Bournemouth are the only team unbeaten in the Championship this season and sit top of the table, three points ahead of West Brom. 

When asked by Football Insider’s Dylan Childs if he expected the Cherries to win promotion, Campbell said:

“Bournemouth are looking good so it looks likely they’ll get it.

“Extra money is always sweet, especially when it is a couple of million. A couple of million can go a long way at Celtic.

“Get it in the coffers and see where you can spend it.

“This rebuild is going to take a few transfer windows. They still need to strengthen. They need more players.

“Celtic football club need to be challenging for the league. A couple of million can help them bring in a couple more players.”  

Christie has made six appearances for Bournemouth to date.

He has three assists to his name from those games.
