Two ‘deals’ fall by the wayside.


Philippe Senderos and Ruud van Nistelrooy are both on the move tonight but neither of them to Celtic.

Senderos was heavily linked with Celtic early in the week but has agreed to join Everton on loan till the end of the season.

The much more fanciful, and largely internet based, rumour linking Van Nistelrooy with a loan deal has sunk without trace with the striker moving to SV Hamburg for £1.5m on an 18 month contract.

Preston boss Darren Ferguson has dismissed any deal under £4m for Sean St Ledger which  looks like Celtic will be forced to look elsewhere for the defender that Tony Mowbray clearly is looking for.

With a week to go before the transfer window closes speculation is bound to intensify as clubs, players and agents indulge in the ultimate game of poker.

Every club is looking to get the top price for their players but no-one wants to be left with expensive and unwanted goods when the transfer window closes.

It’ll be fever pitch time next Sunday with Celtic the only SPL club in the market for signing players.

    i for one am pretty pleased we are being priced out of the deal for st ledger as he is no better than gary caldwell and at that price of 4 m they must seriously be having a laugh

    Morning Joe,
    I think if you listened carefully to TM's comments last week….
    Senderos was never coming to us…
    Ruud Van Whateverhisname is ….is reputedly about to earn £100,000 per. week!! That's probably about £80k more than we could.
    As for St. Ledger….agree with others…he's not THAT good.
    Does anyone agree with my thoughts on the big Hearts stopper …Concalves?? I think he would do us a job …at a PRICE we could afford and WAGES also.
    Just an opinion.
