‘It is up in the air’ – What chance have Celtic got of sealing summer transfer? Opinion



The future of 21-year-old West Brom winger Oliver Burke is very much up in the air when his loan spell at Celtic comes to an end in the summer, especially with the permanent manager situation at the Baggies still to be resolved.

Burke has found his goal-scoring touch whilst at Celtic, that has led to a recall to the Scotland squad for the upcoming Euro Qualifiers this month, but following the departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester his future long-term at Celtic Park is unsure.

So with the permanent manager situation up in the air at both Celtic and West Brom, is it now more likely he will remain at the Baggies long-term?

Louie Chandler

“It is up in the air.

“Burke has done really well since arriving in Scotland and looks like he would be happy to stay there.

“But if Alex Neil or Slavisa Jokanovic comes in and makes him an important part of the squad he will stay.”

Gary Hutchinson

“I could see it anyway.

“Celtic weren’t going to spend £15m on him.

“He’s stuck really, unless a buyer with more money than sense can be found.”

Jay Taylor

“It’s a real possibility now.

“Depending on which manager comes in, he will want to have a look at all the players West Brom have.

“Burke has been doing really well at Celtic, and that could sway the new man into giving him another chance at the Hawthorns.”
