Real Mallorca defender Ivan Ramis keen on Celtic


Real Mallorca defender Ivan Ramis has opened the door to a possible transfer to Celtic.

Ramis was expected to join Celtic in January but the deal fell through at the last minute while Robbie Keane, Edson Braffheid and Diomansy Kamara signed on.

Mallorca’s financial problems were highlighted by UEFA’s decision to kick them out of the Europa League last week with the club desperate to bring in cash.

Javier Diaz, Ramis’ agent, told the Sunday Mail: “In December it looked as if Ivan would go to Celtic but the two clubs couldn’t agree on it.

“Now the situation has changed. Real Mallorca need money and it’s possible we could begin talks again. Ivan likes Celtic and he would be open to going there.

“He’d enjoy Scottish football but we’ll have to wait and see.”

Ramis admitted: “I accept I have to exit as we are in a difficult situation. If I leave, it will suit all parties.”

There isn’t much detail to add to the quotes from the player and agent but the 24-year-old’s ability and pedigree is well known to Celtic’s scouting staff.

Sol Campbell has been a long term target of Neil Lennon with reports today that William Gallas will be meeting Celtic next week.

Central defence is the one area of the team that Lennon has still to strengthen after signing full-backs, midfielders and a striker.
