Celtic have held talks with Manchester United over the possibility of signing Saidy Janko.
The versatile youngster has taken a trip to Lennoxtown in Scotland to take a look at the club’s facilities ahead of a proposed move to the Scottish Champions.
There is some confusion as to whether a deal for Janko would be permanent or a loan spell but reports do suggest the 19-year-old is closing in on a move away from Old Trafford.
Janko, who signed with United in 2013 from FC Zurich, featured once for the senior side last year in the 4-0 trashing at the hands of MK Dons and was sent out on his first loan move to Bolton, where he featured ten times for the Championship outfit.
He plays primarily as a right-back but his versatility has seen him play in a more attacking role on the right flank both for United’s U21s and for Bolton on loan last season.
While a season long loan move for Janko would be excellent for his progression, United would be making a big mistake by letting him leave the club permanently this summer.
Janko has progressed well since he arrived two years ago and his inclusion in lots of first-team training under Louis van Gaal was indicative of that, so to sell him at this stage would be very premature of United.
