Celtic To Target This Swansea Starlet For A Move In January: Will He Be An Astute Signing?

Celtic were a side which seemed to be interested in beefing up the quality of their arsenal instead of adding their quantity. The Celts lured merely five names to the Celtic Park over the course of the summer transfer window and considering their upcoming domestic fixtures as well as their endeavours in UEFA Champions League, it goes without saying that they should have done some more business to bolster their credentials.

One of the areas which needed to be looked after in a better manner was their defence. Dedryck Boyata and Erik Sviatchenko have been out for a considerable period of time owing to their knee injury, which has really hindered their defensive resilience of late.

In what appeared to be a season when the Glasgow giants would really unleash their potential in the elite club competition of Europe, they were torn apart in their first group game in the midweek fixture against Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

According to one of the latest reports by The Daily Record, the Bhoys are keen to make a move during the January transfer window in order to sign Swansea City’s starlet Joe Rodon. The highly rated defender, who has emerged through the youth ranks of the Swans, is tipped to be a Premier League sensation a few years down the line and the Scottish Champions should be keen to make a loan move, which should benefit all the parties involved.

Swansea City have Mike van der Hoorn, Alfie Mawson, Kyle Bartley and Federico Fernandez to be used at the heart of their defence, which implies that Rodon is unlikely to get a to prove his mettle in the top flight.

In a situation like this, a move to a club which nurtures blossoming youngsters meticulously, like Celtic, should be an appealing move for the young centre-back and at the same time, the Premier League outfit should be able to pencil his progress as well.

The likes of Kieran Tierney, Moussa Dembele and Patrick Roberts have really thrived well under the tutelage of the Rodgers and no reason why Rodon would not be handed a similar platform make his presence felt.

The 19-year-old is someone who is very composed figure and owing to his ability to play the ball from the back, he has been compared to John Stones. Celtic are undoubtedly a big club and a loan deal should help him get into the groove for bigger things that await for him.
