Quiet summer points to Celtic being stuck with fringe duo for a while yet


Celtic have done well to get some players out of the club this summer, but it has gone all quiet on the Hoops future of some high-profile fringe players.

The Hoops have released Nir Bitton, Erik Sviatchenko has been sold, and some young players like Joe Thomson and Jamie McCart have left the club.

These are all smart moves, as the players had no chance of playing for the Hoops first-team.

But the Bhoys still have the likes of Dorus de Vries and Marvin Compper at the club, and at the moment it seems that there is no interest in these players.

Neither of those high-profile players seem to have any kind of future with the Bhoys, with de Vries now firmly the third choice goalkeeper, and Compper almost invisible since joining the Hoops in January.

De Vries and Compper will probably be on good money as well, and if the Hoops could get them off the books before the start of the transfer window it would be a boost for the Bhoys going forward.

What the Bhoys don’t want to do is give them a free transfer, it wouldn’t be worth paying the players’ contracts up, and it would cost the club too much money.

Ideally, the duo will be sold to clubs as soon as possible, and the Hoops can use the money to bring in some new signings, but at this moment in time the chances of this happening looks very slim.
