Celtic Steal A March Over Chelsea In Race For This English Talent: Can He Deliver For Lennon?

According to the latest reports from the Scotsman, Celtic are likely to beat Chelsea in the race for the signing of Bolton Wanderers’ young talent Ronan Darcy. The Trotters are going through a torrid time on and off the pitch, and they can lose a lot of their crucial players and young talents in the summer transfer window.

Why are Chelsea losing out?

Darcy has caught the eye for Bolton’s u-18 side this season, and his impressive performance in the FA Youth Cup brought him a lot of attention from the Premier League clubs. Chelsea, on the other hand, are facing two windows transfer ban. They would hope that they could overturn the decision in the Court Of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

Why is Celtic a better option than Chelsea for the youngster?

That is probably one of the reasons why Celtic have stolen a march on Chelsea at the moment, and Darcy could be a decent addition for the future. Moreover, Chelsea are often blamed for not giving the young and academy players too many opportunities, and they have a whole set of players who usually play on loan year after year.

So we feel that for any young player around, Celtic would be a better option than Chelsea if he is looking for stability and chances in the first team.

Darcy made his debut in the Championship this season against Nottingham Forest where he played as a left midfielder. Bolton are going to face tough times ahead as they have been relegated to the League One and their players refused to play the tie against Bretford due to unpaid wages recently.

Why are Bolton unlikely to keep hold of him?

Moreover, they will start their League One campaign with 12-point deduction having appeared in court last week after an unpaid £1.2m tax bill. That certainly puts them in danger of being relegated from League One at the end of the next season. This is a situation which is not ideal for players involved at the club and talents like Darcy are going to be picked off by the rival clubs.

One for the future

Celtic have had a history of picking up young players and then moulding them into first-team players. We don’t expect Darcy to make an impact in the senior team straightaway this season and he is likely to be part of youth and reserve team. The forward is being highly rated in England, and when Premier League heavyweights are eyeing a deal, then one can expect something special from the youngster. It remains to be seen whether Darcy would be able to deliver the goods at the top level if Celtic goes on to sign him.
