Report: Celtic demanding £1m fee for Teemu Pukki

Celtic FC Stands 2

Brondby are amongst the clubs said to be interested in Celtic striker Teemu Pukki.

Celtic are demanding £1 million for out-of-favour striker Teemu Pukki, according to a report in the Daily Record.

Pukki has impressed on a loan spell with Brondby this season and the Danish club are understood to be very keen on turning the move into a permanent one.

However, they are reportedly yet to meet Celtic's asking price and a conclusion to the negotiations is a long way off, with the Scottish champions keen to recoup a chunk of the £2.4 million fee they paid to sign Pukki back in 2013. 

Pukki appears to have little future at Parkhead and Bhoys manager Ronny Deila admitted today that a move may be best for all parties. 

"We’ll see if there’s a future together or if we look at other options," Deila said. "It will happen for the best for everyone.”

Pukki has scored five times in 11 matches in the Danish league to date and has become a key player for Brondby, as they look to claim a European place. 

He looks set to be one of a number of players who could exit Parkhead in the coming weeks, with Deila trying to streamline his squad. 

The likes of Amido Balde, Beram Kayal and Derk Boerrigter are all reportedly set to leave the Bhoys this month, with the squad in need of an overhaul after a disappointing start to the campaign.
