Sources: Celtic to bin another loan star as mass exodus underway
Celtic loanee Jeremy Toljan is set to be the next senior player through the club’s exit door, Football Insider understands.
More than 10 players from the Hoops’ current first-team squad are set to leave this summer, after the mass exodus began with the weekend exit of Timothy Weah.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker’s half-season loan was abruptly terminated last weekend after he opted to play for the USA at the Under-20 World Cup rather than in the remainder of Celtic’s campaign culminating in the Scottish Cup final.
A Celtic source has told Football Insider that the club have no plans to try and sign Toljan permanently and he will return to Borussia Dortmund following the 25 May showdown v Hearts.
The right-back arrived with a big reputation in January after accumulating extensive Bundesliga experience at Dortmund and former club Hoffenheim as well as Germany Under-21 caps.
But Toljan has struggled to make a big impression in the Scottish Premiership and has not played since late March despite being available for selection.

The 24-year-old has not looked convincing defensively in his 13 Celtic appearances and is unlikely to feature in the final two matches of the treble chasers’ campaign.
Celtic do not have a fixed option to buy in Toljan’s loan deal.
