Celtic Agree Deal For This Impressive South African Defensive Rock: Canny Move By Rodgers?

Celtic have started their title defence in the Scottish Premiership in grand fashion, having won consecutive matches to reinstate their dominance in Scottish football once again this season. They have already scored seven goals in their three matches so far and have only conceded a single goal so far in the competition to continue their run in form, which won them the trophy in the last term.

The Scottish treble winners are looking forward to making a few signings for their team before the summer transfer window for this season comes to a close, with their top target being the South African youngster Rivaldo Coetzee, who is currently playing for the local club Ajax Cape Town in his home country. The player has been identified as one of the best youngsters in world football and is supposed to have a very bright future ahead of him.

Reports are indicative that the two clubs have agreed on a deal for the young centre back to make a move to the Celtic Park in the forthcoming days, subject to a medical and the receiving of his work permit before he arrives at Glasgow. The South African international, who has already represented his country at the senior level, can be a good addition to the current Scottish Premiership champions and help them in their pursuit to glory once again this season.

The 20-year-old has been nothing less than a rock in the defence for his South African club Ajax Cape Town and has starred for them in a number of memorable victories since he made his debut for them at the age of 15. His physical presence and ability to keep the opposition players at bay from scoring against his team have made him one of the most promising players, who is destined to become one of the big name players for his country. Apart from his physicality, his clean tackles and ability to put his body in the line of danger to keep his goal safe have been much appreciated by the experts.

Besides his defensive abilities, the young South-African centre back can also be dangerous from set piece situations, scoring with his head to find the back of the net from corners as well as free kicks. His brilliance helped him to win the prestigious Player of the Season and Player’s Player of the season awards in the last term for Ajax Cape Town.

It is undoubtedly going to be a big opportunity for the player to play for one of the top clubs in Europe in the new season. However, he will have to be ready for new challenges.
