'Difficult one to turn down' – James McClean wants Celtic move this summer
West Brom winger James McClean has made his intentions very clear about his thoughts on a move to Celtic this summer.
McClean played in Scott Brown’s testimonial on Sunday, with Celtic drawing with Ireland in a 2-2 draw.
Since then he’s been begging for a move to Celtic, with his current club having been relegated to the Championship.
Talking in the Daily Record, McClean said: “Look, if it was up to me I’d have been a Celtic player a long time ago.
“When I was leaving Sunderland, you get the rumour pages and I saw one saying Celtic had a bid accepted for me and I remember being buzzing.
“At the time it was under Paolo Di Canio and it was in my head that I was leaving anyway. I thought this is it! But absolutely nothing came of it.

“I’ve just turned 29, I feel great. Fitter than I’ve ever been. If the opportunity comes it would be a very difficult one to turn down. I’ve never hidden that.”
