Celtic Want To Complete Late Deal For Premier League Defender – Here’s What He’ll Offer

Celtic have started their life under Brendan Rodgers in the best possible manner. Champions League qualification (tick), a perfect start in the Premiership (tick), a solid transfer window (tick)- Rodgers is definitely a favourite at the green half of Glasgow right now. However, no matter how good life is at Celtic at the moment, there is always room for improvement.

According to The Scotsman, Celtic are looking to make a move for out of favour Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom. Despite showing plenty of promise from his young days at Liverpool, Wisdom could never really make it big for his boyhood club and now is at a point in his career where a move is needed to rejuvenate his frozen career.

For three successive seasons, Wisdom has been shipped out on loan from Liverpool to Derby County, West Bromwich Albion and Norwich City respectively. He has made a very little impression while on loan and looks on the fringes of the Liverpool team now. It’s quite clear that the 23-year-old is not good enough for the Premier League but looks ideal for the Premiership.

Wisdom is a versatile defender who can play anywhere across the backline. Throughout his career, he has mostly played as a right-back but has also been deployed at the heart of the defence or even as a left-back. The versatility of the former English under-21 international will be a big addition to Celtic who have to play a lot of games this season having qualified for the Champions League.

Wisdom is well-known to now Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers. In fact, he earned his Liverpool debut under the Northern Irishman himself. A reunion with the 43-year-old might do enough to rejuvenate the career of the defender who badly needs a career revival. With a frame of 6’1”, Wisdom is a strong defender and he possesses a decent pace as well.

Wisdom has all the ingredients of becoming a successful ball-playing defender courtesy to his pace and passing ability. Scottish football is vastly inferior to the level of the Premier League and a reunion of the 23-year-old with Rodgers at Parkhead can turn out to be a masterpiece from Rodgers.
