There are reports that Dedryck Boyata is wanted by newly promoted EPL side Fulham, for a whopping £9m, and although this is chicken feed to these idiot clubs in that league, it’s still a substantial amount of money for Celtic.
Personally, I rate the big man, and as I keep saying, we as fans do not see the money the club gets on any level and while some of it should be in our bank accounts, it will never happen, but it’s still a huge cash injection for a player that many feel is a ‘bombscare’ for us.
Regardless of his sometimes careless mistakes with Celtic, Boyata had a fine world cup for Belgium and has certainly improved under Brendan Rodgers, now looking very much a different footballer from the unsure and cowardly defender that he resembled under Ronny Deila.
Will anything materialise here ? We’ll need to wait and see, but I wouldn’t be gutted if he stayed, and feel the big man can still do a job for us.
