‘It could be great’ – Celtic eye up Championship winger for January move: the verdict



West Bromwich Albion closed the gap on the Championship top two to just two points last weekend thanks to their 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday. 

It was a spirited point at the Hawthorns after having to play more than half of the match with ten men when Jay Rodriguez was given his marching orders for a stamp.

With Norwich City losing late on to Derby County at Carrow Road, the gap narrowed and with the Baggies now unbeaten in nine league matches, the focus is well and truly on automatic promotion.

Darren Moore’s attacking unit has been the driving factor behind their success with strikers Rodriguez and Dwight Gayle scoring 12 and 13 goals respectively whilst winger Harvey Barnes has nine.

One man who is yet to make an impact is Oliver Burke with the 21-year-old making just three appearances so far from the bench.

A move in January is looking more and more likely with Celtic the latest club to register their interest in taking the former Leipzig man on loan.

But would he be a good signing?

We discuss…

George Harbey 

It could be a great signing.

He hasn’t had a consistent run of games in a while, but he showed in his time at Nottingham Forest that he can be a real threat on his day.

Joe Worrall has proved that a move to Scotland can prove to work wonders, so Burke should go.

Alfie Burns 


I can’t for the life of me work out why Burke is on the fringe at West Brom, he’s a great player.

Regular football with Celtic could be the making of the winger. He could thrive there.

George Dagless

It’s a tough one to call.

He has obvious potential but things have gone quiet for him in recent months.

Celtic is a huge club with massive expectations – he’ll either rediscover himself or wilt further.

Jacob Potter

It’s a great bit of business.

If he’s to get regular football there, then it’s the perfect move for both parties involved.

Burke has the quality to be playing at a higher level and he should be looking to prove to West Brom, exactly what they are missing out on.
