According to latest reports, Erik Sviatchenko, the 26-year-old Celtic centre-back is unsure about his future with the Scottish giants after his loan spell with FC Midtjylland in Denmark. He was signed by the Hoops in 2016 for a fee of £1.5m and his contract runs until the end of 2020 season.

During an interview, he said,” I was brought here (Midtjylland) to win the title, so it’s job done for me. It’s a great feeling to win the league. I honestly don’t know about my future. I have been focused so much on winning the title I have not thought about it. I want to celebrate first. It’s hard to answer if I want to stay with Midtjylland or go back to Celtic.”

He joined Celtic from the Danish outfit itself and it seems like the Danish international wants to return to his home country. The Scots didn’t miss him much as they continued their dominance in Scottish football and wrapped up another treble this season.

That’s their second consecutive treble in a row and it looks like they are going to be tough to stop even next year as well. The likes of Rangers, Aberdeen and Hibernian FC needs to pull their socks otherwise Brendan Rodgers’s side will be runaway winners next season as well.

The latest reports suggest that Celtic and Midtjylland met on Friday to discuss the future of Sviatchenko, who earns £12,000 per week as salary and the player has already agreed on a permanent move and he is just waiting for his parent club Celtic to give the green signal.

On being asked about which club he wants to have a future with, he jokingly said,” “Every club in the world is an option for me. I don’t know what will happen. I won’t rule any club out and if Real Madrid calls me, I am ready!”

Rodgers currently has a plethora of options at the centre back position as he has the likes of  Kristoffer Ajer, Jack Hendry, Marvin Compper and Dedryck Boyata. The Hoops have been strong at the back and they conceded just 25 goals in their entire campaign. It is likely that Rodgers will let Sviatchenko leave in the summer and it won’t be that big of a blow for his team. The Danish defender’s heart already seems to be at his old club and there is no point in keeping him at Celtic Park.
