Here are the latest Scottish Premiership transfer rumours of the day as on 30.1.2024.
Matt Targett unlikely to join Celtic
Newcastle player Matt Targett got injured in November and hasn’t played since then. Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers only has one choice for the left-back position right now, which is Alexandro Bernabei. Another player, Greg Taylor, will be out for three to four weeks due to a calf strain.
This means the team is short on options in that position. Recently, there were rumours that Celtic might be interested in signing Matt Targett. However, the Newcastle United manager, Eddie Howe, said that Targett is not for sale and emphasized that he has an important role in the team’s plans.
Owen Beck returns to Dundee
Owen Beck is back at Dundee on loan from Liverpool for the rest of the season. He had a great first half of the season at Dundee but had to go back to Liverpool in January because of injuries to other players.
Now that the injured players are back in action, Owen Beck has returned to Dundee to play more games. Celtic were interested in him, but once he played for Liverpool against Bournemouth, he could only play for Dundee this season.
Aberdeen are interested in Mattie Pollock
Aberdeen really wants to sign Mattie Pollock back to help with their defensive problems. Mattie had a good time playing for Aberdeen on loan last season, and now the team is looking at him and other defenders before the upcoming deadline.
It’s not clear if Watford, Mattie’s current team, will allow him to return to the Scottish Premiership side, especially after he played a full game in the FA Cup against Southampton over the weekend.
Hugo Cuypers won’t be joining Rangers
Rangers are not going to sign Gent striker Hugo Cuypers according to Sacha Tavolieri. According to the reliable journalist, Rangers like the type of player Hugo is, but the striker won’t be joining the team.
David Turnbull could leave Celtic
Cardiff are talking to Celtic about getting David Turnbull. David’s contract with Celtic ends in the summer, and many think he will leave either then or before that. The English Championship team wants to make a deal happen and has been talking to Celtic about it.
The discussions between the two clubs are still happening. David Turnbull has started in only seven league games for Celtic this season and came in as a substitute in nine more. Despite scoring seven goals, it was expected that he would want more playing time elsewhere when his contract ends.
