Willem II defender Mitchell Dijks has told Voetbal.com that Celtic made made an offer to his agent in a bid to sign him this summer.
Dijks, 22, joined Ajax as a 16-year-old from Volendam, earning his football education in the famed Ajax academy before stepping up to the first team in 2012.
Yet with the likes of Daley Blind and Nicolai Boilesen in contention, Dijks found first-team football hard to come by at Ajax, eventually joining Heerenveen on loan last season and Willem II permanently last summer, penning a two-year contract with the Eredivisie club.
Now, The Sun have reported that Celtic want to sign Dijks as cover or as a potential replacement for Emilio Izaguirre, and are ready to offer up £900,000 to land him this summer.
Just a matter of hours after that report, Dijks has told Voetbal.com that Ronny Deila's mena re indeed interested in signing him - and have made an offer to his agent to try and secure the deal.
"I’ve actually heard that they are interested. They have made an offer to my agent. Celtic is obviously a great club and they again play in the Champions League," said Dijks.
With just one year left on his deal at Willem, Dijks could be available for a knockdown price, and Celtic will now be hoping that they can land him for that reported £900,000 fee this summer.
