Former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie believes that Manchester City youngsters Jason Denayer and Patrick Roberts could be tempted by a permanent move to Glasgow.

The duo are currently out on loan from Pep Guardiola’s cash-rich side with Roberts already at Celtic until the summer, while Denayer is playing for a relegation threatened Sunderland team, also until the summer.

Now, summer appointment Brendan Rodgers will be looking to improve on a very successful debut campaign in the next transfer window and he may scour the Premier League market for any future starts not getting a look-in at their parent clubs.

This led to one fan asking McAvennie on his personal Twitter account if Celtic should look for £10million plus Roberts and Denayer for club star Moussa Dembele from Manchester City.

But, McAvennie responded himself: “What about all three in the Celtic team?” alongside stating that the Hoops were becoming a top side under Rodgers and Roberts and Denayer won’t get a chance at City.

Denayer, 21, has made 21 league appearances for Sunderland this season, playing in the centre-back, defensive midfield, right-back, central midfield and left-back positions throughout the campaign.

Meanwhile, Roberts, 20, has established himself as one of the key part of the Celtic team this season with a return of 10 assists and five goals from 27 Premiership matches this season and the Hoops would surely be interested in bringing him back in a permanent deal.

In other Celtic transfer news, Alan Pardew has told how he tried to sign this Hoops star.
