5 Celtic Players Who Could Do With A Move Away Before The Transfer Window Closes

With the end of the transfer window approaching, there are several players currently at Celtic, who should be looking for a move elsewhere, whether that be on a temporary or permanent basis.

Here are five players we think could do with a move…

Vakoun Issouf Bayo

The Ivorian striker has been limited to just two first team appearances for a total of three minutes across all competitions since his arrival at Celtic Park from DAC Dunjeska Streda back in January.

Injuries have disrupted the 22-year-old’s start to life at the reigning Scottish champions and a loan move could be useful to allow him to get back on track.

Behind Odsonnne Edouard and Leigh Griffiths in the pecking order, Bayo is unlikely to get many chances to impress and risks stalling his career by staying at Celtic.

Both Kilmarnock and Livingston are in need of reinforcements in attack and could be suitable destinations for Bayo if Celtic wish to keep him closer to home to keep an eye on him.

Ewan Henderson

Henderson is one of the top-rated prospects coming through the ranks at Celtic and at 19-years-old, it is the perfect time for him to now go out on loan and get regular first-team football.

The youngster got a taste of first-team action at the end of last season and has made one cameo appearance this season.

Henderson’s elder brother Liam was sent out on loan to then Championship side Hibs whilst at Celtic and the move worked wonders for his development.

A move down to the Championship, which is renowned for its competitive nature, could do the world of good for Ewan too.

Calvin Miller

Capable of playing at left back or on the wing, the 21-year-old’s chances of Neil Lennon giving him minutes on the park are slim.

Following Kieran Tierney’s departure to Arsenal, Celtic are reportedly on the look-out for another left back to compete with Boli Bolingoli Mbombo which would only further hurt Miller’s already minute chances at Celtic.

Miller has a year left on his deal but should be looking for a permanent move away before the end of the window rather than waste at least the next six months playing reserve football.

Jack Hendry

Hendry has had few chances to impress since his move to Celtic back in 2018 from Dundee and has yet to feature at all for the club this season.

Hendry is far from first option at the club and it would require a lot of injuries at centre back for him to get a chance.

A loan or even a permanent switch would be best for the 24-year-old and there are a few clubs in the Scottish Premiership alone who could do with signing him.

Lewis Morgan

Despite featuring quite a lot in the early part of the 19/20 season, some fans have voiced concerns about whether Morgan is Celtic quality or not.

The 22-year-old starred for St. Mirren prior to his move to Celtic Park and did not exactly set the world alight during his loan stint at Jack Ross’ Sunderland last season.

Another loan would probably be best for Morgan, who is under contract with the Celts until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Had Hibs not signed Glenn Middleton from Rangers, they would have been a good destination for Morgan. Aberdeen could be an option though with thanks to the good relations between the two clubs.
