New twist in Celtic’s defender search

Celtic are reported to have stepped up their interest in signing Josip Juranovic from Legia Warsaw.

Early on in his reign Ange Postecoglou highlighted right-back as an area of concern but since then Anthony Ralston has been in exceptional form.

For a while Aurelio Buta of Royal Antwerp seemed to be Celtic bound but over the last few days speculation has centred on Yan Couto of Manchester City and Juranovic.

Couto was reported to have been given the VIP treatment at Celtic’s win over Jablonec but that experience hasn’t been followed up by a more permanent move north.

Croatian international Juranovic is reported to be available after Legia were knocked out of the Champions League, with two weeks left in the transfer window activity is likely to be stepped up across Europe.

Thomas is assistant news editor at Sky Sports News with 35,000 followers on Twitter.

Celtic have until 11pm tomorrow to register any new signing for the Europa League ties against AZ Alkmaar but it is unlikely that anyone would go straight in after just one training session.
