Celtic's hopes of signing Ikechi Anya this summer may just have disappeared with Watford's promotion to the Premier League.
No move has yet materialised for the Watford star, who appears likely to stay put after the team's promotion to England's top flight.
Anya has 10 international caps for Scotland and three goals, including one against Germany.
He said: "I want to be in the Premier League and regular European competitions and World Cup competitions."
Celtic could of course offer a quicker path into Europe than Watford, but Anya is not likely to walk away from the club now they are in the Premier League.
He has made 34 appearances for Watford this season in the Championship, providing seven assists.
Celtic did manage to sign Dundee United winger Stuart Armstrong in January, but any move for Anya will have to be placed on ice for at least another year while he sees if he can make a go of it for Watford in the Premier League.
